Abstract

Disseminated fusariosis is a fatal infection in immunocompromised hosts. However, the optimal antifungal treatment for disseminated fusariosis has not yet been established. We report a case of disseminated fusariosis after chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, presenting with multiple skin, lung and kidney lesions and cerebrospinal fluid invasion. The combination therapy of liposomal amphotericin B and caspofungin resolved disseminated fusariosis successfully.
