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).
