Systemic Fusarium infections in immunodeficient patients

Systemic Fusarium infections in immunodeficient patients

Two cases of fatal disseminated Fusarium infection are reported in immunocompromised patients. F. solani was cultured from blood and bronchoalveolar lavage, just prior to death, in a 33-yr-old female bone marrow transplant recipient. In a 39-yr-old woman with myelodysplastic syndrome, skin lesions developed following tonsillectomy and F. solani was cultured from a nasal smear and blood. The diagnosis was confirmed at autopsy.
