Abstract

ZEKAVAT, Omid Reza et al. Colonic basidiobolomycosis with liver involvement masquerading as gastrointestinal lymphoma: a case report and literature review. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.5, pp.712-714. ISSN 1678-9849.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0057-2017.

Basidiobolomycosis is an unusual fungal skin infection that rarely involves the gastrointestinal tract. This study reported a 5-year-old boy with gastrointestinal basidiobolomycosis that had been misdiagnosed as gastrointestinal lymphoma. He was treated by surgical resection and a combination of posaconazole and amphotericin B deoxycholate with an acceptable response and no recurrence.

Keywords : Basidiobolomycosis; Lymphoma; Gastrointestinal.
