A 43-year-old patient with recurrent acute myeloid leukemia (AML) was treated with high-dose cytarabine. After two weeks of neutropenic fever, multiple cutaneous nodules appeared. Histopathological examination of a skin biopsy showed a mycosis and Fusarium solani was cultured. Despite antimycotic therapy, the patient died due to complications of his AML treatment.
