Description:Depicted in this photograph is the plantar surface, or sole of a patient’s right foot, revealing a lesion of the right great toe, which was determined to be due to a specie member of the fungal genus, Geotrichum. See PHIL 12664, for a view of this patient’s right foot from the same plantar perspective, also revealing a Geotrichum infection.
This fungus is found worldwide in soil, water, air, and sewage, as well as in plants, cereals, and dairy products. Geotrichum spp. may cause opportunistic infections in immunocompromised hosts, which are referred to as geotrichosis.
