  • Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in patients with underlying risk factors (e.g., neutropenia, cancer chemotherapy, transplantation, AIDS). Although Candida species remain a relevant cause of IFI, other organisms (particularly moulds) have become increasingly prevalent. In particular, Aspergillus species are the leading cause of mould infections although other moulds including Fusarium species and Zygomycetes are increasing in… CONTINUE READING
