Chrysosporium species caused an invasive infection in an 18-year-old patient following allogeneic sibling bone marrow transplant for T lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This infection began as a facial swelling and extended into the central nervous system. Fungal disease spread rapidly despite antifungal agents. An autopsy showed fungal involvement of brain, lungs, liver and kidneys.
