Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Black yeasts are a rare cause of infections especially in Europe, yet their pathological significance is increasing, particularly in cases of immunosuppression. We report a 53-year-old immunocompetent woman with an extensive skin infection due to Aureobasidium pullulans, who responded well to treatment with liposomal amphotericin B.
