Abstract

The dematiaceous coelomycete Pleurophomopsis lignicola Petr. was isolated repeatedly in pure culture from a subcutaneous abscess of the left leg in a farmer undergoing corticosteroid therapy for asthma gravis. To our knowledge, we report the first case involving this fungus as an aetiological agent of subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis.
