Abstract

We report a case of mixed intranasal infection caused by Fusarium solani and a zygomycete, with probable sinus and brain involvement. The patient had chronic myelogenous leukaemia and was treated with chemotherapy. Diagnosis of the infection was established by direct examination of the intranasal eschar and histopathological study of an excisional biopsy. Only F. solani was isolated from both specimens. Difficulties in diagnosis and treatment of these infections are discussed.
