Scedosporium apiospermum (Pseudallescheria boydii) endocarditis

Scedosporium apiospermum (Pseudallescheria boydii) endocarditis

Journal of Infection 44(3): 189-192

Scedosporium apiospermum, the asexual state of Pseudallescheria boydii, is increasingly recognized as an opportunistic pathogen. We report a case of native valve endocarditis due to this organism that developed in an elderly patient following a prolonged hospitalization. Literature on endocarditis caused by S. apiospermum and P. boydii is reviewed.
