Abstract

Alternaria spp. infections are rare, but organ transplant recipients and immunosuppressed patients are particularly at risk of developing cutaneous alternariosis. Although cutaneous alternariosis is well-defined, instances of disseminated infection are exceedingly rare. We report a case of disseminated Alternaria infection in an immunocompromised patient from a primary focus of ungual phaeohyphomycosis.
