Title Ethmoidal sinusitis caused by Exserohilum rostratum in a patient with malignant lymphoma after non-myeloablative allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.
Journal Transpl Infect Dis
Abstract We describe a patient with aggressive lymphoma who contracted an ethmoidal sinus infection due to Exserohilum rostratum after non-myeloablative allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. E. rostratum is an extremely rare causative pathogen of invasive fungal infection. Phylogenetic tree analysis of the D1/D2 domains within the LSU rDNA identified the molecular structure of isolates. We believe this is the first description of E. rostratum infection in a patient who underwent hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
