We describe a case of pulmonary abscess caused by Dactylaria constricta in a heart transplant recipient. A 30-year-old man with a 1-month history of fever and cough was found by computed tomographic scan to have a cavitary lesion in the lingular segment in the upper lobe of his left lung. Culture of a needle biopsy specimen yielded a pure culture of D. constricta. The patient was successfully treated with systemic amphotericin B therapy, which resulted in resolution of the clinical symptoms and of the cavitary lesion.
