Abstract

Bacterial superinfection is a known complication of influenza infection, with Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus often being the offending pathogens. In recent decades, there has been an increased prevalence of superinfection with Aspergillus in seemingly immunocompetent hosts. We describe a fatal case of influenza complicated by simultaneous methicillin-resistant S. aureus pneumonia and invasive pulmonary aspergillosis.
