Pericardial Effusion Due to Trichosporon japonicum: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Abstract

Invasive infections due to Trichosporon spp. are life-threatening opportunistic fungal infections that may affect a wide array of organs. Here, we described a case of pericardial effusion due to Trichosporon japonicum in a 42-year-old female after a heart transplantation. T. japonicum was isolated from the pericardial fluid, pericardial drain hole and the swab of the sternal surgery scar wound. The late mycological diagnosis due to blood culture negative, the ineffective control of pulmonary bacterial infection and the late start antifungal therapy were the contributing factors in the patient’s death.
