Subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by Exophiala jeanselmei: successful treatment with itraconazole.
It has been observed that in the industrial environment where a lot of pigeons, sparrows and other birds fly most often thrush fungi are detected: Candida albicans (M-1; R-21; I-32%); Rhodotorula rubra (M-6; R 10; I-23%); Exophiala jeanselmei (M-2; R-6; I 17%), Asperlillus fumigatus (M-6; R-13; I-49%) and Eurotium repens (M-3; R-11; I-23%).
On a part of specimens covered with the zinc coatings an almost continuous mucous bloom was seen which was formed by developing yeast-like fungi: Exophiala jeanselmei, Rhodotorula rubra, Aureobasidium pullulans.
