Abstract

Fungal infection remains an important complication in allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). Since the prognosis of fungal infection is poor, prophylaxis is critical for its management; owing to recent progression in allo-SCT management and widespread use of reduced-intensity regimens, the strategy of infectious prophylaxis has also changed. Various antifungals have recently been developed and applied to clinical use. A major change in antifungal management will probably occur in the next few years.
