Abstract

We present a case of isolated sinusitis sphenoidalis caused by , an emerging causal agent of fungal infections with an often fatal outcome. A strain was isolated from secretion obtained from the sinus sphenoidalis of a rhinosinusitis patient and identified by sequence analysis of two loci as from the Longibrachiatum Clade of the genus can trigger a fatal pathomechanism in immunodeficient patients, but only rarely causes disease in healthy people. The case presented is unique because the patient was not immunocompromised.
