    Acquiring accidental aspergillosis

    Mitchell S Davis*, Lydia Shedlofsky and Christine C Lin

    Aspergillus is an all-pervasive mold with the potential to cause severe invasive infections in the immunocompromised. A rare cutaneous manifestation of Aspergillus infection, primary cutaneous aspergillosis (PCA), occurs in just 1-5% of invasive aspergillosis cases. Prompt treatment is indicated as PCA may progress to a disseminated state. We present a unique case of an immunocompetent individual diagnosed with PCA two weeks after trauma and subsequent surgery.
