Filamentous fungal infections in immunosuppressed patients: prophylaxis and treatment     


Although the incidence of invasive aspergillosis has decreased in haematologic patients and solid organ transplant recipients due to the use of prophylaxis; aspergillosis has emerged in other populations undergoing immunosuppressive drugs where prophylaxis is not well defined presenting different clinical patterns. Voriconazole is the gold standard in the treatment of aspergillosis and probably combined therapy, with voriconazole plus anidulafungin, could have a role in the initial management of the infection.
