Pheohyphomycosis caused by Exophiala spinifera: a rare occurrence.


:A 10-year-old immunocompetent boy presented with multiple, verrucous, disseminated pheohyphomycotic lesions caused by Exophiala spinifera. The patient was not responsive to combination antifungal therapy (itraconazole, terbinafine, fluconazole) and cryotherapy. As antifungal susceptibility is known to be variable for Exophiala spinifera, in vitro sensitivity testing is recommended before medical treatment. This article reviews, in brief, all cases documented so far in the English literature.
