Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fusariumspp are rare but important opportunistic pathogens in immunocompromised patients. Disseminated fusarial infections occur mostly in patients with hematologic malignancies with myelosuppressive chemotherapy or in patients with severe immunodeficiency. Although more frequent than Aspergillus fungemia, Fusarium fungemia remains a rare event. We describe the case of a female patient with febrile neutropenia and persistent fungemia due to Fusarium solani, treated with posaconazole and liposomal amphotericin B. A review of the literature for Fusariumspp fungemia was carried out.
