Abstract

We report a rare case of hepatosplenic abscesses caused by Verticillium spp. in a 40-year-old female leukemic patient. Identification of the microorganism was based on amplification of the D1-D2 region of the large-subunit RNA gene from DNA extracted from paraffin sections of liver tissue, followed by sequencing of the amplified polymerase chain reaction product.
