Exserohilum rostratum, seen here in this photomicrograph, is a common mold found in soil and on plants and thrives in warm and humid climates. Exserohilum rarely causes infections in people. When infections do occur, they often affect the skin, eyes, or sinuses. More severe forms of the infection are thought to be more likely in people with weakened immune systems. In 2012, injections of medication contaminated with Exserohilum and other fungi led to a large U.S. outbreak of invasive fungal infections: http://bit.ly/FungalOutbreak2012.
