Scedosporium apiospermum is an opportunistic fungus that can cause various types of infections, including localized infections and life-threatening disseminated infections, particularly in immunocompromised patients. Treatment is especially challenging due to its multidrug resistance. We herein report the case of a 73-year-old woman who was non-immunocompromised but developed S. apiospermum lung infection and a pulmonary tumorlet. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the coexistence of pulmonary S. apiospermum infection and tumorlet. The lung lesion was successfully treated by surgical excision without any antifungal agents, and no recurrence of the tumorlet or S. apiospermum infection has occurred.
