We report a case of subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by Exophiala (E.) jeanselmei in a 75-year-old female, who showed subcutaneous abscesses on the both forearms for 8 months. Histopathologically, suppurative granulomatous inflammation and short hyphae & spores were observed. Fungal culture grew out the typical black-gray velvety colonies of E. jeanselmei after 3 weeks. The isolate grew well at 25degrees C, but very poorly at 37degrees C. No growth could be observed at 40degrees C. We confirmed E. jeanselmei by colony & microscopic morphology and temperature tolerance test. The patient had been treated with fluconazole for 3 months.
