We report the 1st case of sinusitis and human infection by Xylaria enteroleuca (anamorph Nodulisporium sp.), a rare fungal endophyte of rain forest trees. The patient was a Brazilian woman who had her lung transplanted. Diagnosis was established by direct microscopic examination, computed tomographic scan, cultures, and sequencing of a ribosomal RNA gene. The in vitro antifungal susceptibility of the isolate is provided.
