Rights and Permissions

Phaeohyphomycosis belongs to a heterogeneous group of fungal infections, originally described by Ajello et al. as mycoses, whose etiologic agents develop in host tissue as dark-walled, septate mycelial elements. Disseminated infections occur in immunocompromised patients, involving the paranasal sinuses, eyes, central nervous system, lymph nodes, and bone. We present here an interesting image of 18F fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomography showing scapula osteomyelitis caused by phaeohyphomycosis.
