Phaeohyphomycosis refers to fungal infections caused by dematiaceous (darkly pigmented) fungi. It can be associated with a variety of clinical syndromes including invasive sinusitis; nodules or abscesses beneath the skin; keratitis; lung masses; osteomyelitis; mycotic arthritis; endocarditis; brain abscess; and wide-spread infection. Although the condition can affect anyone, it is most commonly diagnosed in people with suppressed immune systems (like those who have undergone an organ transplant) and can even be life- threatening in these populations. Treatment depends on the signs and symptoms present in each person but may include surgery and/or various antifungal medications.
