Rights and Permissions

We report a case of pulmonary disease due to Chrysosporium species in a preexisting tuberculous cavity in an immunocompromised male patient. The fungus was isolated from broncheoalveolar lavage fluid. The fungus was repeatedly isolated in culture, and the patient recovered with anti-tuberculosis treatment. Although the members of the genus Chrysosporium are common soil saprobes, they can occasionally cause systemic infections.
