文献摘要

  We report a case of cerebral phaeohyphomycosis caused by Scytalidium dimidiatum (synanamorph Nattrassia mangiferae) in a young, apparently immunocompetent Indian male. Etiological diagnosis was made by recovery of the fungus in culture and histopathological examination. The infection proved fatal despite aggressive antifungal therapy.
