Abstract

Veronaea botryosa is a rare agent of human phaeohyphomycosis. We describe the first case of subcutaneous disease occurring in the United States, alert clinicians to the second report of a transplant-associated mycosis in a heart transplant recipient, extend the previously defined area of endemicity, and review the literature.
