Samenvatting

Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are colonized with a multitude of bacteria and fungi. From respiratory samples of two CF patients in our institute, a difficult to identify yeast was isolated repeatedly. This yeast was eventually identified as Cutaneotrichosporon (Cryptococcus) cyanovorans by internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and ribosomal large subunit (LSU) sequencing. C. cyanovorans is a basidiomycetous yeast originally reported as environmental isolate from South African soil and has not been described before as clinical isolate from CF patients.
