By D J Marriott, K H Wong, E Aznar, J L Harkness, D A Cooper and D Muir


Immunocompromised patients are susceptible to infections by fungi that seldom cause disease in humans. We describe a human immunodeficiency virus-infected patient who had simultaneous infections with two fungi which are rare causes of serious infection: Lecythophora hoffmannii, causing chronic sinusitis, and Scytalidium dimidiatum, causing skin lesions, lymphangitis, and lymphadenitis. The clinical and pathologic findings are discussed
