Curvularia

(kŭr'vū-lā'rē-ă),
A genus of dark-colored fungi that grow rapidly on culture media. Generally regarded as contaminants, two species, Curvularia lunata and Curvularia geniculata, are among the species capable of producing mycetoma in humans, keratomycosis, sinusitis, and phaeohyphomycosis.

Cur·vu·la·ri·a

(kŭr-vyū-lar'ē-ă)
An opportunistic fungus widely spread in nature; plant pathogen known to cause leaf spots, seedling blight, and failure of seeds to germinate. In humans, this fungus has been associated with sinusitis, keratitis, pulmonary infections, and in the immunocompromised patient, occasionally, disseminated disease.
