Abstract

We report on a case of probable invasive Auerobasidium spp. pulmonary infection in a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome. The patient was successfully treated with liposomal amphotericin B monotherapy, with transition to orally administered isavuconazole. This case shows an atypical initial radiological presentation with diffuse ground-glass opacities, as previously demonstrated in cases of Aureobasidium spp. hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Moreover this case further highlights the difficulties associated with the diagnosis and complexity in the management of Aureobasidium spp. infections.
