AMAYA, Paula Pena et al. Phaeohyphomycosis by Exserohilum rostratum in a pediatric patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia after bone marrow transplantation. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.3, pp.91-100. ISSN 0325-7541.

The genus Exserohilum consists of dematiaceous or darkly pigmented fungi. Most of the species included in this genus are phytopathogens, saprobes and only three of these species would be pathogenic to humans: Exserohilum rostratum, Exserohilum longirostratum and Exserohilum mcginnisii. Localized and systemic infections have been reported both in immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients. A clinical case of cutaneous infection by E. rostratum in an immunocompromised pediatric patient is presented in this study.

Keywords : Phaeohyphomycosis; Exserohilum rostratum; Immunocompromised pediatric patient.
