A Non‐fatal case of invasive zygomycete (Lichtheimia corymbifera) infection in an allogeneic haematopoietic cell transplant recipient
Abstract:Post‐transplant infections in allogeneic haematopoietic cell transplant (allo‐HCT) recipients often have severe consequences. This is especially the case when dealing with zygomycete infections where the result is often fatal. A major problem when dealing with zygomycete infections is the need for an accurate and fast diagnosis as the phylum is highly resistant towards the conventional antifungals. We herein describe a non‐fatal case of Lichtheimia corymbifera infection in an allo‐HCT recipient.
