The isolation of Phoma eupyrena from a human lesion

Abstract: A strain of the soil-borne fungus Phoma eupyrena was isolated from the skin of an 18-month-old boy who had a crusting, erythematous, perioral eruption of one month's duration. Treatment with clotrimazole, 15% zinc oxide paste, and dimethicone resulted in eradication of the fungus and in complete healing of the lesions in eight weeks.

“…(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18)(19)(20), Neoscytalidium dimidiatum (21)(22)(23)(24)(25), and Phoma spp. (11,(26)(27)(28)(29)(30)(31)(32)(33)(34)(35). Our study partly confirms the data from previous studies in which Neoscytalidium dimidiatum (approximately 15%), Paraconiothyrium cyclothyrioides (approximately 7%), and Phoma herbarum (approximately 6.5%) were the most common species, having been recovered mainly from superficial tissue and respiratory tract specimens.…”

“…Most cases are associated with exposure to sandy beaches in tropical regions, where H. werneckii is found in areas of high salinity (588). However, individual cases due to Scopulariopsis brevicaulis, Phoma eupyrena, and Chaetomium globosum with findings consistent with tinea nigra have also been reported (57,154,287). Diagnosis is made by skin scraping, and biopsy is not needed.…”

“…Of these cases, the age range is from one month old to 77 years old with a total of three pediatric cases (9.4%) [ 51 , 52 , 53 ]. Most of the cases were skin injuries ranging from superficial to deep trauma and comprising 22/32 subjects (69%) [ 10 , 50 , 51 , 53 , 54 , 55 , 56 , 57 , 58 , 59 , 60 , 61 , 62 , 63 , 64 , 65 , 66 , 67 ]. Five infections (16%) were eye related, due to either trauma or contact lens wear [ 68 , 69 , 70 , 71 , 72 ].…”
