Summary:Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is relatively common in allogeneic stem cell transplant (SCT) recipients. Although lungs are the most common site, central nervous system (CNS) involvement is also observed in this setting. We have retrospectively studied 14 cases of CNS aspergillosis found in a cohort of 455 allogeneic SCT recipients (incidence 3%). All patients, except one, had experienced acute graft-versus-host disease treated with high-dose methylprednisolone, and eight patients (57… CONTINUE READING
