Abstract


No cases of human infections caused by Cladosporium velox have been reported. A 69-year-old female patient with rheumatoid arthritis developed pneumonia with empyema. The fungal cultures of pleural fluid were obtained. Cladosporium was grown from the pleural fluid. C. velox was identified by internal transcribed spacer sequencing. The pathologic results of biopsied lung tissue indicated the presence of fungal hyphae. C. velox can cause clinical infection in an immunocompromised setting.
