Fusarium solani Infection
Fusarium solani is a mold that causes disease primarily in neutropenic patients. It resembles Aspergillus in that it is a mold with aseptate hyphae, which tends to invade blood vessels. Fever associated with lesions in the skin is the common clinical presentation. The fungus differs from Aspergillus by culture in which it produces banana-shaped conidia. F. solani causes a disseminated disease primarily in neutro-penic patients. Blood culture is frequently useful for diag-nosis of the condition. Amphotericin B is the drug of choice.
