Two cases of invasive Trichosporon beigelii (syn. cutaneunt) infection are reported and are compared with the eight other previous reports. All affected patients were either immunosuppressed or had recently undergone a surgical procedure. The diagnosis had been delayed and the prognosis was poor. Only two patients recovered after vigorous antimycotic therapy and concomitant remission of their leukemia. A biopsy of the skin lesion, as illustrated in one of our patients, may prove to be useful in the early diagnosis.
