We describe a case of recurrent Scopulariopsis brevicaulis subcutaneous infection, which occurred 6 years after the patient underwent liver transplantation. Combined surgery and long-term oral therapy with terbinafine resulted in a favorable outcome, although this is not the rule in the previously reported S. brevicaulis infections in immunocompromised patients.
