dc.description.abstractAn 81-year-old man from rural Australia presented with right pretibial cellulitis 7 days after minor trauma against furniture. He failed to improve despite antibiotics and surgical debridement. Subsequent cultures grew the rare fungusSaksenaea vasiformis,which was treated with further surgical debridement, amphotericin B and posaconazole. This was successful and the patient made a full recovery. We present the case and discuss lessons learnt.-
