Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cutaneous aspergillosis is a common systemic mycosis affecting immunosuppressed patients. Here, we describe a novel morphological type of cutaneous aspergillosis in a young immunocompetent woman who presented with a chronic history of multiple nodules and discharging sinuses over left side of the face, mimicking cervicofacial actinomycosis. Skin biopsy showed granulomatous inflammation, and of septate fungal hyphae with acute-angled branching, morphologically resembling Aspergillus. This was confirmed on fungal culture as Aspergillus flavus.
