Efficacy study of early presumptive therapy (EPT) for deep fungal infection

Efficacy study of early presumptive therapy (EPT) for deep fungal infection

Nihon Ishinkin Gakkai Zasshi 45(4): 203-208

We retrospectively studied the efficacy of early presumptive therapy (EPT). Subjects and Method: Of the critically ill patients admitted from January 1998 to the end of December 2000 to the Kyorin University Trauma Burn and Intensive Care Center, Japan, 77 cases were diagnosed with suspected deep fungal infection, and EPT was administered. The diagnosis of suspected deep fungal infection was made by definition.
