Abstract

The study describes isolation of from a case of eosinophilic fungal rhinosinusitis (EFRS). The isolate was identified by routine mycological methods and confirmed by DNA sequencing of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of rDNA. To our knowledge, this is the first report of its kind from Iran.
