Abstract

Abstract

is the only species in the genus that has been involved in a previous human infection. To date, only one case of infection in a patient with GATA-2 immunodeficiency has been reported. We here report the second human case and the first case of septic arthritis and osteomyelitis due to in an immunocompetent patient, living in Mayotte, a French island in western Indian Ocean. He was successfully treated with surgical debridement and 6 months of antifungal treatment. This second observation of human invasive disease caused by is an additional argument for the pathogenicity of this rare species.
