Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Angioinvasive fungal infections (AFIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality among immunocompromised patients. However, clinico-microbiological characteristics and treatment of many AFI agents remain poorly defined. We report the first human case of Westerdykella dispersa, an emergent cause of AFI, which was successfully treated in a neutropenic pediatric patient.
