article description
We report a case of Trichosporon loubieri (T. loubieri) fungemia with likely liver involvement in a 39-year-old Caucasian patient with relapsed B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia after an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant. This is the fifth published case of T. loubieri infection and only the third case of T. loubieri fungemia, to our knowledge. All 3 cases of T. loubieri infection with fungemia had liver involvement.
