Abstract

A case of a two year and three month old Thai boy with a history of recurrent bacterial infections since aged 2 months. A definite absence of superoxide activity in the patient' s granulocytes detected by nitroblue tetrazolium test indicated the diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease. He suffered from septicemia and systemic fungal infection, resulting in death despite rigorous medical care. The postmortem findings showed extensive granulomatous inflammation in several internal organs. Tissue culture led to diagnosis of disseminated trichosporonosis, an uncommon infection in immunocompromised patients. This is the first case report of disseminated trichosporonosis in a chronic granulomatous disease patient.
