hyphomycosis

any infection caused by an imperfect fungus of the form-class Hyphomycetes; the group has been divided into hyalohyphomycosis and phaeohyphomycosis based on the color of the mycelium and wall of the fungus.

(hī'ă-lō-hī'fō-mī-kō'sis),
A general term for infection in tissue caused by a fungus with hyaline (colorless) mycelium. If the mold can be identified, disease should be given a specific name, such as aspergillosis or fusariosis.

hyalohyphomycosis

(hī'ă-lō-hī'fō-mī-kō'sis)
An infection caused by a fungus with hyaline (colorless) mycelia in tissue, usually with a decrease in body resistance due to surgery, indwelling catheters, steroid therapy, or immunosuppressive drugs or cytotoxins.
