Disseminated nannizziopsis infection in an adolescent with a STAT1 mutation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An adolescent with failure to thrive developed cuboid bone osteomyelitis and brain abscesses. Mold isolated from both locations was identified by universal genetic sequencing as Nannizziopsis spp, which is typically a pathogen of reptiles. The patient was subsequently diagnosed with a STAT1 mutation and was successfully treated.
