Abstract

Hyalohyphomycosis (hyaline septate molds) is a term used to encompass a variety of less common yet medically opportunistic mycotic pathogens.1 They are non-dematiaceous molds or yeasts in which the tissue form is a colorless (hyaline) septate fungal hyphae with no pigment within the walls. This term is the counterpart to phaeohyphomycosis in which pathogens develop septate brown-walled hyphae in tissue. Hyalohypho­mycosis does not represent a recognizable clinical syndrome, but in histologic tissue sections they can be misidentified as Aspergillus. Hyaline septate molds are identified by their macroscopic and microscopic morphology in culture. However, greater than 50% of hyaline molds indentified in tissue cannot be cultivated for definitive identification. The members of this group are extremely heterogeneous and include Fusarium, Penicillium, Paecilomyces, Acremonium, Scopulariopsis, and Trichoderma.
