We report the in-vitro susceptibility of 27 clinical isolates of Scedosporium apiospermum and 43 of Scedosporium prolificans. S. apiospermum was resistant to fluconazole and flucytosine, with variable susceptibility to amphotericin B, itraconazole, ketoconazole and susceptible to miconazole. Voriconazole was much more active than fluconazole and flucytosine, more active than amphotericin B, itraconazole and ketoconazole and was as active as miconazole against S. apiospermum isolates. Voriconazole and the other six antifungal agents showed low activity against S. prolificans isolates.
