Traumatic Wound Infection with Graphium

Chun-Liang Wu, Chien-Ming Chao, Wei-Ting Lin.

Abstract
Graphium species are filamentous fungi and belong to the family of Ascomycota. They have been recovered from soil, plant debris, woody substrates, manure, and polluted water, and most of them are plant pathogens. In contrast, human infections caused by Graphium spp are extremely rare. Herein, we reported the first published case of Graphium traumatic wound infection in an immunocompetent patient. Surgery was performed and amphotericin was added into the antimicrobial regimen for better coverage of the fungus. The postoperative course was smooth, and the patient was discharged uneventfully.

Key words: Wound infection; Graphium
