A 59-year-old man was admitted to this hospital for induction chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia. On the seventh hospital day, neutropenia, fever, nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal pain developed. Despite the administration of broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy, tender, erythematous skin lesions developed on the trunk, abdomen, and arms and legs, and bilateral pulmonary nodules were seen on computed tomographic scans of the chest. A diagnostic procedure was performed.
