Cladophialophora bantiana Brain Abscess in a Solid-Organ Transplant Recipient: Case Report and Review of the Literature


American Society for Microbiology


Cerebral phaeohyphomycosis caused by Cladophialophora bantiana is a rare disease. We describe a heart and bilateral lung transplant recipient who was unsuccessfully treated for a C. bantiana brain abscess. This report compares the present case to those of other solid-organ transplant recipients with the same infection and to those of patients who did not receive transplants.
