Incidence of invasive aspergillosis among allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients receiving voriconazole prophylaxis

Incidence of invasive aspergillosis among allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients receiving voriconazole prophylaxis

Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease 55(3): 209-212

We performed a retrospective observational study to examine the incidence of invasive aspergillosis (IA) among allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients, according to whether patients received at least 1 week of voriconazole prophylaxis. We report no cases of IA among 92 HSCT recipients who received voriconazole prophylaxis compared with a 10% (23/223) incidence among those receiving other systemic antifungals for prophylaxis (P < .0005).
