Scedosporium apiospermum is an environmental mould. Human infections caused by this organism have been observed; however, only a few case reports show its role as a telluric contaminant to kidney recipients. We have reported here a case of a dramatic soft tissue infection by S. apiospermum in a kidney-transplanted man. Surgical drainage together with voriconazole systemic therapy was successful.
