A Non‐fatal case of invasive zygomycete (Lichtheimia corymbifera) infection in an allogeneic haematopoietic cell transplant recipient
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.
