About Scedosporium apiospermum
Pseudallescheria boydii is a species of fungus classified in the Ascomycota. and pseudallescheriasis. Typically found in stagnant and polluted water, it has been implicated in the infection of immunocompromised and near-drowned pneumonia patients. Its asexual (anamorphic) form is Scedosporium apiospermum. Treatment of infections with P. boydii is complicated by its resistance to many of the standard antifungal agents normally used to treat infections by filamentous fungi.
Pseudallescheria boydii fungal infection killed three athletes injured in the 1997 Maccabiah Games when, at the opening ceremony, a bridge collapsed into the Yarkon River.
