Abstract

Scedosporium apiospermum is a rare cause of infection but is increasingly being reported among immunocompromised individuals around the world. We report two cases of S. apiospermum, one of keratitis and the other of nasal polyp both from immunocompetent patients. The two cases were successfully treated with voriconazole. It is important to diagnose such infections as their antifungal susceptibility to amphotericin B is variable.
