Abstract

Trichosporon species are emerging pathogens capable of causing severe infections in immunocompromised patients. In this paper, we report a case of systemic infection in a liver transplant patient caused by Trichosporon asahii to show the etiologic agent's aggressiveness and poor therapeutic results with the different antifungals employed.
