We describe the clinical course of four patients who had Trichosporon mycotoxinivorans recovered from multiple sputum cultures over time with various clinical consequences but no fatalities. We also report successful rapid identification of this organism using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry.
