Abstract

Metarrhizium anisopliae is a common insect pathogen that rarely causes infection in animals and humans. We report the first case of a disseminated skin infection in an immunocompromised adult patient. To date, only five cases of the disease in humans have been reported. There is no standard treatment for this infection.
