(asexual form, Scedosporium apiospermum) is hypothesized to be the most common fungal pathogen associated with near-drowning, although this finding has not been studied specifically in the context of disasters (30).
Culture confirmation was available in five specimens, which showed Aspergillus fumigatus in 2, Aspergillus flavus 1, Pseudallescheria boydii
1 and Candida albicans (in mixed infection) in 1.
6) Causative organisms include Aspergillus species, Fusarium species, Bipolaris species, Curvularia lunata, and Pseudallescheria boydii
Identify the following fungi based on colony morphology and microscopic appearance: Aspergillus spp, Penicillium spp, Histoplasma capsulatum, Coccidioides immitis, Fusarium spp, Penicillium marneffei, Pseudallescheria boydii
, and Zygomycetes.

Antifungal susceptibilities of the species of the Pseudallescheria boydii
In a retrospective review of 24 patients from whom Pseudallescheria boydii
had been recovered, it was found that 20 patients had cystic fibrosis as their underlying disease process.
Fungal sinusitis secondary to Pseudallescheria boydii
is rare, as only 25 cases have been previously reported in the literature.
apiospermum, the anamorph of Pseudallescheria boydii
, was described more than a century ago as a cause of Madura foot and subsequently mycetoma and otitis externa.
