Brain abscess caused by Cladophialophora bantiana: Total remission after full resection and short-course Voriconazole treatment

Li-Anne Schweizer, Lorenz Bärlocher, Anne Graber & Katia Boggian

Kurzfassung We report on a brain abscess in an immunocompetent man caused by , a black mold known to prefer the brain for abscess-formations with a mortality rate up to 65%. The published cases so far show different therapeutical approaches and outcomes, whereby a standardized treatment could not yet be established. We report on a case of brain abscess with total remission of the abscess after full resection and a short antifungal treatment.
