Cure of Curvularia pneumonia by amphotericin B in a patient with megakaryocytic leukemia



Cure of Curvularia pneumonia by amphotericin B in a patient with megakaryocytic leukemia



Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 112(12): 1178-1179



A case is reported in a 71-yr-old woman who presented with megakaryocytic leukaemia. Five days after starting cytosine arabinoside therapy she became septic with Enterobacter and Klebsiella and despite antibiotic therapy, she developed fever, wheezing and bilateral diffuse interstitial infiltrates. Specimens from bronchoscopy revealed hyphal fragments and a Curvularia sp. was cultured.
