Onychomycosis is the fungal infection of nails which affects 5.5% of the general population. Etiologic agents include dermatophytes, non-dermatophyte molds, and yeasts. The infection usually occurs due to dermatophytes. However, non-dermatophyte molds and yeasts have an increasing role in the development of onychomycosis. Detecting causative agent is crucial for the appropriate therapy, as non-dermatophytic molds and yeasts are usually resistant to classical antifungal agents which are used in the treatment of onychomycosis. Hereby, we report a 39-year-old Caucasian male patient with onychomycosis of the great toenails caused by Aspergillus niger complex, Chaetomium globosum, Cladosporium species, Candida species, and onychomycosis of the left thumbnail due to Aspergillus niger, Chaetomium globosum, Cladosporium species and Candida lambica.
