Abstract

The possible presence of Hendersonula toruloidea in the environment and its role as a human pathogen in Iran was studied. Samples were collected both from trees likely to be infected and from patients who presented with suspected fungal infections of the hands and feet. The samples were mainly collected in areas of southern Iran where the climate is similar to that of areas where H. toruloidea has been found previously to infect humans. H. toruloidea type B was isolated from plant samples (eucalyptus trees) for the first time in Iran but it could not be isolated as a human pathogen.
