Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A retrospective study of patients admitted to the Singapore General Hospital Burn Unit with > 30% total body surface area burns was performed to establish the prevalence of fungal colonisation and invasive fungal disease (IFD). Forty-eight percent of patients surviving at least ten days following thermal injury had fungi isolated. IFD was documented in ten patients. Risk factors associated with the development of IFD, clues to assist in diagnosing IFD, and therapeutic options for managing IFD are reviewed.
