- R. percutanea is the only opportunistic pathogen described in the genus.
- R. percutanea infection can persist for years in a latent form.
- The mode of transmission probably is the traumatic inoculation of splinters or soil contaminated by the fungus.
- The identification of R. percutanea can be problematic.
- The azoles show the highest activity against R. percutanea isolates.
Roussoella percutanea is a novel opportunistic pathogen firstly identified in 2014. It is known to cause subcutaneous infection in immunosuppressed patients. We report on the first case of R. percutanea bursitis in a renal transplant patient. We provide new data about its identification, drug susceptibility, and treatment outcome. Here we demonstrate that R. percutanea is a potential human pathogen.
