Lumbar vertebral osteomyelitis caused by Aspergillus Flavipes group organisms developed in a nonchronically immunosuppressed patient. Diagnosis was confirmed morphologically and culturally from both closed needle biopsy of the vertebrae and subsequent lumbar laminectomy. The patient was treated with 3 g of amphotericin B with apparent eradication of the organism.
