Abstract

Fungal infections caused by Fusarium in the immunocompromised host are highly resistant to all antifungal agents. Fusarium endocarditis is a rare and usually fatal disease. We report an immunocompromised child who survived Fusarium solani endocarditis despite the in vitro resistance of the organism to all available antifungal agents.
