We describe the clinical and pathologic findings of the first reported case of pulmonary botryomycosis in a patient with AIDS. Botryomycosis is an uncommon, chronic, suppurative disease that is often mistaken clinically and histologically for a fungal infection. The patient responded to systemic antibiotic therapy.
