Bottom Line: We report a case of invasive infection due to Saprochaete capitata in a patient with hematological malignancies after chemotherapy treatment and empiric antifungal therapy with caspofungin.Although severely immunocompromised the patient survived been treated with amphotericin B lipid complex associated with voriconazole.

f01: Computerized tomography chest showing pleural effusion in the right lung andpulmonary nodules in the left lung.

Mentions: After a worsening of symptoms, the patient was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of thesame hospital. At the moment the patient showed respiratory insufficiency, septic shock,pyelonephritis, hematuria and acute renal failure. A computerized tomography of thechest showed pleural effusion in the right lung and pulmonary nodules in the left lung(Figure 1). Polymerase chain reaction wasperformed for tuberculosis but was negative. According to the clinical aspects ofpatient a probable systemic fungal infection with involvement of the spleen, kidney andlung was suspected and clinical samples were collected for mycological diagnosis.
