Fusarium Infection after Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation with Prolonged Neutropenia
Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research,
Fusarium is an opportunistic fungal pathogen which is emerging as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the immunocompromised host . This disease can be localized, focally invasive or disseminated, when two or more noncontiguous sites are involved. We present a case of disseminated fusariosis in a patient with prolonged and profound neutropenia after the third allogeneic stem cell transplantation for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
