Abstract

Graphium basitruncatum is genetically and morphologically distinct from other Graphium and Scedosporium species, and has been reported only once previously as a cause of human disease. We report a case of Graphium basitruncatum fungemia in a two year old child with dyskeratosis congenita who underwent stem cell transplantation two months prior to infection.
