Abstract We describe a rare case of a subcutaneous infection by both Phaeoacremonium venezuelense and Plectophomella sp. in a Brazilian male. Sequencing of a beta-tubulin gene fragment allowed us to confirm the identification of the former. However, a similar procedure of sequencing rRNA gene fragments was not useful for the identification of the latter fungus.
