Abstract:
A 39-year-old healthy man developed a brain abscess weeks after a near-drowning incident. Scedosporium apiospermum, the anamorph of Pseudallescheria boydii, was isolated from the abscess. The patient died 153 days after the accident despite antifungal therapy. We discuss the role of antifungals and review the literature for comparable cases.
