Self-Resolving sp. Colonization in a Lung Transplant Patient

Cladophialophora spp. are dematiaceous moulds that are responsible for causing a variety of human infections in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Infections caused by Cladophialophora spp. most commonly involve the skin and soft tissue and the central nervous system (CNS). Cladophialophora sp. infections involving the skin and soft tissues are often referred to as chromoblastomycosis, a slowly developing condition that rarely disseminates and can be treated with surgical excision and/or antifungal chemotherapy.
