AbstractFusarium solani, not known to produce onychomycosis, was repeatedly recovered trom two healthy men with'Iesions in fingernails. Mycelial fragments and microconidia were observed in the diseased nails and the fungus was repeatedly isolated in the cyclo-heximide-free culture medium. The report indicates that many fungi, hitherto considered nonpathogens may still be able to colonize a variety of human tissues.
