Description:

Here, we report one of the unusually rare presentations of disseminated Saprochaete capitata in a patient without hematological malignancy, but the patient had a prolonged history of chronic active hepatitis C, diabetes mellitus, prolonged ICU stay on mechanical ventilation, and exposure to several antimicrobials. The currently isolated Saprochaete capitata showed resistance to amphotericin B, triazoles and ecchinocandins, but susceptible to 5-flocytocine with MIC ≤1 mg/dl.
