Further, it is still under discussion whether Trichosporon beigelii, formerly called T. cutaneum, and T. asahii are the same organism (424,425). Trichosporon beigelii is a saprophytic yeast usually found in the soil that can be cultured from human skin, stool, and urine. This organism has been implicated as the etiologic agent of white piedra, an infection of the distal end of the hair shaft, as well as causing cutaneous infections in immunocompetent patients (425–427). In immunosuppressed patients, particularly in those with underlying malignancy, it has been implicated as the cause of fungemia, renal insufﬁciency, pulmonary inﬁltrates, cutaneous lesions, chorioretinitis, and chronic hepatic trichosporonosis (428–437).

Arthroconidia germinate to produce spherules and endospores, which are released when the spherules rupture. The spherules are surrounded by neutrophils and macrophages, leading to granuloma formation. The organism is resistant to killing by neutrophils and macrophages, and a cell-mediated response is essential. Defects in cell-mediated immunity are associated with dissemination. More than half of the Coccidioides infections are asymptomatic, with about 40% having a self-limited ﬂu-like illness in the ensuing weeks after exposure (6,276,277).
