Özet

Scedosporium (monosporium) apiospermum is the most common causative agent of maduro mycosis. Recent research reports claim that this fungus can also induce arthritis. We report on the disease in a woman from a rural area who was admitted to our clinic because of arthritis symptoms. We were able to detecte Scedosporium apiospermu, i.e., it was probably a fungus-induced arthritis which had developed after an intraarticular steroid injection.
