Abstract

We report a case of fungemia caused by <i>Scedosporium prolificans</i>, an emerging pathogen. An 83-year-old man with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and agranulocytosis was admitted for pneumonia in January 2009. He was treated with meropenem, minocycline, and <tt>γ</tt>-globulin for pneumonia and G-CSF and platelet transfusion for MDS. Although he recovered from pneumonia as neutrophil count increased, intermittent fever continued. <BR> On hospital day 17, blood culture yielded fungal colonies indicating <i>S. prolificans</i>. Voriconazole was started immediately, but the manʼs general condition deteriorated with cerebral infarction and he died of cerebral hemorrhage on hospital day 65. <BR> Attention must therefore be paid to the increasing scedosporiosis incidence in Japan.
