: Emergent pathogen as Purpureocillium lilacinum are becoming cause of morbidity and mortality in our population, especially in immunocompromised patients. We describe a case of hyalohyphomycosis in a diabetic man under systemic steroid treatment for a bullous pemphigoid.

The aim of this article is to increase awareness of clinicians about this uncommon, but frequently fatal refractory mycotic infection.
