• A 30-year-old woman had a pruritic skin lesion from which a yeastlike organism, Sporobolomyces holsaticus, was isolated. Members of this group of yeasts are found in the soil throughout the world and have been implicated only twice before in human infection. We report a third case of infection due to a Sporobolomyces organism.
