Resumo Fusarium species are common soil saprophytes and plant pathogens that have been frequently reported as etiologic agents of opportunistic infections in humans. We report eight cases of onychomycosis caused by Fusarium solani (4) and Fusarium oxysporum (4) in São Paulo, Brazil. These species were isolated from toenails in all cases. the infections were initially considered to be caused by dermatophytes. the clinical appearance of the affected toenails was leukonychia or distal subungual hyperkeratosis with yellowish brown coloration. the eight cases reported here suggest that Fusarium spp. should be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of tinea unguium.
