Because of the vasculotropic nature of the fungus, these papules and plaques often evolve rapidly into hemorrhagic vesicles and, ultimately, into black eschars (148). Primary cutaneous infections may also develop at sites of venous access, often due to contaminated dressing materials or abrasion of the skin by adhesive tape. 149 Hyalohyphomycosis caused by Aspergillus species in tissue often demonstrates vasculotropic hyphae with prominent cytoplasm with regular septae. Histopathologic examination of cutaneous aspergillosis often demonstrates vasculotropic hyphae of less than 5 μm in diameter, with prominent cytoplasm, a thin delicate wall, and associated inflammation and vessel destruction (149).

1998). Risk factors for disseminated fusariosis include severe immunosuppression, neutropenia, lymphopenia, and corticosteroids use (Dignani & Anaissie, 2004). It should be emphasized that it may be impossible to discriminate between aspergillus and fusarium species based on histopathology alone and culture is almost always necessary (Sampathkumar & Paya, 2001).
