Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of cerebral cladosporiosis caused by Cladosporium trichoides (bantianum) now known as Xylohypha bantiana is described and illustrated. Predisposing debilitating diseases were not detectable. The Cladosporiosis diagnosis was based on visualisation of hyphal element in direct Gram's stain, direct KOH preparate of pus from brain abscess and on repeated successful cultivation of Cladosporium trichoides from specimen and by histopathology. Following surgery and anti-fungal chemotherapy the patient was cured.
