Abstract

Invasive aspergillosis is a life-threatening fungal infection, especially in immunocompromised patients. Pulmonary aspergillosis is the most common type of the infection, while urinary tract infection is relatively rare. Here, we describe a case of a 46-year-old man with chronic renal disease presenting with intermittent abdominal pain. The diagnosis of aspergillosis was established by pathological findings of the fungal ball in the bladder. The patient underwent multiple antimicrobial treatments and surgical interventions and was finally cured by posaconazole.
