Resumen

SOMOCURCIO, José G. et al. Pulmonary mycetoma by Scedosporium sp, report of two cases. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2009, vol.26, n.3, pp. 395-399. ISSN 1726-4634.

We report the two first cases of pulmonary mycetoma by Scedosporium sp. in Peru who underwent surgery in the Hipolito Unanue National Hospital. Pulmonary resection was made as therapy of pulmonary mycetoma, and samples were sent for microbiological cultures and pathologic examination. Scedosporium fungus was identified in two patients with post- TB cavitary sequelae who presented cough and hemoptysis, with two months and three years of evolution respectively. chest X ray showed cavitaries occupied by ¨fungus ball¨. Pathologic examination showed hifae not distinguishable from Aspergillus sp and the test for aspergillum inmunodiffusion was negative.

Palabras llave : Scedosporium; Lung diseases, fungal; Case report.
