Aspergillus ochraceopetaliformis is a rare fungal species that has not yet been identified as a proven human pathogen. Here we report a case of a toenail infection in a healthy woman caused by this fungus. Species identification was performed by scrutinizing the phenotypic and genetic characteristics of distinct isolates obtained at different times during the course of the infection. Treatment with terbinafine plus ciclopiroxolamine was effective.
