Invasive aspergillosis (IA) caused by inherently more antifungal-resistant non-fumigatus Aspergillus species has become an important life-threatening complication in severely immunocompromised patients with cancer. The purpose of this study was to compare the relative incidence of, risk factors for, and in vitro correlation of amphotericin B and itraconazole with the clinical outcome of IA caused by Aspergillus fumigatus with those of IA caused by non-fumigatus Aspergillus spp. in patients with… CONTINUE READING
