ABSTRACT

Scedosporium spp. are saprophytic filamentous fungi isolated from soil, sewage and polluted water. Traumatic inoculation is a common way to become infected. We present a case of a patient with septic arthritis and chronic osteomyelitis due to Scedosporium apiospermum successfully treated with voriconazole. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2016;6(4): 192-196

Keywords: Scedosporiosis, Scedosporium apiospermum, fungal arthritis, fungal osteomyelitis, voriconazole
