DescriptionAlthough isolates of filamentous basidiomycetes can usually be recognized in a clinical laboratory setting, identification is problematic, as they seldom exhibit diagnostic morphological features formed in nature. This paper is the first report of Inonotus (Phellinus ) tropicalis inciting human disease and describes the methods used to support the identification.
