Aspergillus spp.

by anresis

Aspergillus are ubiquitous in nature and cause a broad spectrum of disease in humans.

Aspergillus species can cause life-threatening invasive aspergillosis in immunocompromised hosts. Infections are most frequently caused by Aspergillus fumigatus. Nevertheless, non-fumigatus Aspergillus spp. are increasingly reported. Additionally, azole resistance among A fumigatus has emerged worldwide and has been associated with a high mortality rate in immunocompromised hosts.
