Cutaneous Protothecosis in Patient with Diabetes Mellitus and Review of Published Case Reports

Protothecosis is an opportunistic infection caused by Prototheca , usually called as saprophytes, and is frequently found in natural and living surroundings with low virulence, but may cause chronic infection in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case of cutaneous protothecosis with zopfii v... Full description

description: Protothecosis is an opportunistic infection caused by Prototheca , usually called as saprophytes, and is frequently found in natural and living surroundings with low virulence, but may cause chronic infection in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case of cutaneous protothecosis with zopfii var. portoricensis infection in a 66-year-old diabetic woman following hand surgery on middle right finger. Mycology study showed that smooth, creamy white, yeast-like colonies grown after necrotic tissue was cultured on Sabouraud dextrose agar at both 37 and 25°C. The organism was then identified as Prototheca zopfii var. portoricensis by molecular identification and also found from histopathology of the lesion. The lesion got improved with intravenous amphotericin B and itraconazole.
