Abstract

Moulds belonging to the genus Paecilomyces are rare opportunistic pathogens. About 100 cases have been reported in immunocompromised hosts or in relation to surgical procedures. We describe here a cutaneous infection due to P. lilacinus in a renal transplant patient, which responded to voriconazole treatment.
