A fungus also called Trichosporon capitatum. Found in environment and on the skin.
Severe prolonged neutropenia.
In Europe it is usually found in Southern, warmer, parts but may be coming north with warming (PubMed).
The paucity of cases make definitive recommendations impossible.
Maybe half of isolates are fluconazole resistant and may be caspofungin resistant as well.
