Abstract

Basidiobolomycosis is an unusual fungal skin infection that rarely involves the gastrointestinal tract. This study reported a 5-year-old boy with gastrointestinal basidiobolomycosis that had been misdiagnosed as gastrointestinal lymphoma. He was treated by resection and a combination of posaconazole and amphotericin B deoxycholate with an acceptable response and no recurrence.
