Abstract

Cladophialophora boppii is a dematiaceous fungus, which has been reported only rarely to be the cause of cutaneous infection. Herein we describe a C boppii parenchymal and bronchial infection in a lung transplant recipient. We also illustrate the clinicoradiologic patterns and review possible treatment options for these difficult infections.
