Abstract

The optimal type and duration of antifungal therapy for localized aspergillosis in cardiac transplant recipients is unclear. We report the case of a patient who had persistent invasive pulmonary aspergillosis despite prolonged treatment with amphotericin B. A combined approach using antifungal therapy and surgery appears effective for localized pulmonary disease. Aspergillar infection in solid organ transplant recipients is reviewed.
