Following a motorcycle accident, a 29-year-old man had fixation of a femoral fracture with an intramedullary rod. After he was discharged, the wound deteriorated rapidly and did not improve despite multiple debridements and antibiotic therapy. Apophysomyces elegans grew on cultures, and treatment with amphotericin B was followed by healing and plastic reconstruction.
