Abstract

A 44-year-old immunocompromised man presented with multiple tissue abscesses, covering the entire left limb. A dematiaceous fungus compatible with Petrak was isolated from the diseased tissue in pure culture. This is the second reported isolation of this fungus from man and the first report of fatal soft tissue infection. A detailed morphological description of the isolate is provided.
