Abstract

Documented Paecilomyces lilacinus infections are quite rare. Most reports involve immunocompromised patients or implanted objects. We report the first case of complicated soft tissue infection caused by P. lilacinus in an immunocompetent host. The spectrum of infections involving this fungus is reviewed.
