  • Scedosporium apiospermum soft tissue infection successfully treated with voriconazole: Potential pitfalls in the transition from intravenous to oral therapy JOURNAL OF CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY Schaenman, J. M., DiGiulio, D. B., Mirels, L. F., McClenny, N. M., Berry, G. J., Fothergill, A. W., Rinaldi, M. G., Montoya, J. G. 2005; 43 (2): 973-977

    Abstract:

    An immunocompromised patient with an invasive soft tissue infection due to Scedosporium apiospermum was successfully treated with voriconazole and surgical debridement. After transition from intravenous to oral therapy, successive adjustments of the oral dose were required to achieve complete resolution. For soft tissue infections due to molds characterized by thin, septate hyphae branching at acute angles, voriconazole should be considered a first-line antifungal agent. The potential usefulness of plasma voriconazole levels for guiding optimal therapy should be investigated.
