Trichosporon fungi are rare infectious agents in normal healthy people while they cause various clinical diseases ranging from a simple superficial infection to serious deep infections.
A 5 year old case who was being treated with acute lenfoblastic leukemia (ALL) diagnosis was started wide spectrum empirical antibiotic therapy because of fever. Soon after he had status epilepticus, he was internalized to the intensive care unit. A mass lesion was detected in his liver and he still had fever and Trichosporon asahii was isolated from his urine sample. The patient died although he was treated with fluconazole which was shown to be susceptible.
