A rare case of cutaneous Trichosporon asahii infection in an immunocompromised child
We present an 11‐year‐old girl who developed neutropenic fever and papulonodular lesions over her limbs and back following chemotherapy for relapsed acute myeloid leukemia. She was found to have cutaneous Trichosporon asahii infection, with no evidence of systemic infection, and responded to treatment with voriconazole. T. asahii infection is rare but often fatal and usually causes disseminated infections in immunocompromised patients. Cutaneous infection is relatively uncommon and rarely occurs in the pediatric population.
