Colletotrichum is an important fungal plant pathogen, yet an uncommon cause of human disease. Herein we report a case of invasive, cutaneous infection in a stem cell transplant recipient due to Colletotrichum species, with accompanying review of the literature. The infection was successfully treated with a combination of liposomal amphotericin B and voriconazole. Multilocus phylogenetic analysis revealed that the distinct isolate belongs to Colletotrichum siamense, a member of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex not previously described as a human pathogen. Colletotrichum infection remains in the differential for skin lesions in the immune compromised host.

Abstract

Colletotrichum is an important fungal plant pathogen, yet an uncommon cause of human disease. Herein we report a case of invasive, cutaneous infection in a stem cell transplant recipient due to Colletotrichum species, with accompanying review of the literature. The infection was successfully treated with a combination of liposomal amphotericin B and voriconazole. Multilocus phylogenetic analysis revealed that the distinct isolate belongs to Colletotrichum siamense, a member of the Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex not previously described as a human pathogen. Colletotrichum infection remains in the differential for skin lesions in the immune compromised host.
