CONCLUSION: CNS Fusarium infection should be considered when an immunocompromised patient presenting with fever, conscious change, cranial nerve palsies, and angioinvasion suggested by brain imaging. To properly manage the disease, early effective antifungal therapy and neurosurgical intervention are important. PMID: 29468621 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of successful treatment of probable invasive pulmonary aspergillosis due to A. lentulus and polymicrobial infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a patient with relapsing granulomatosis with polyangiitis and recent high-dose steroid therapy.

Meeting's Aim and Scope:It is our great pleasure to announce that we have come to organize the next CentralEuropean Summer Course on Mycology (www.cesc.hu), which will once again take place inSzeged, Hungary, from 06 – 11, July 2018. Throughout the years, the conference seriesbecame more and more successful thanks to both the invited lecturers and the interactivestudents. Therefore, next year, we would like to maintain the high quality and content of thisevent, thus we ’d like apply for a financial support to be able to celebrate the 10th yearsCourses&Workshops

We report an initially immunocompetent patient with orbital apex syndrome (OAS) whose presentation suggested giant cell arteritis. Subsequently, metastatic carcinoma was entertained as a cause of OAS until bronchoscopy yielded Blastomyces species. The patient rapidly succumbed with multiorgan failure despite Amphotericin B administration. At post-mortem, Blastomyces co-infection with fungal hyphae in keeping with Aspergillus species was found in cavernous sinus and in infarcted optic nerve. To the best of our knowledge, co-infection with these two organisms in this clinical setting has not been reported.

This study aimed to assess the susceptibility profile of Aspergillus isolates, specifically looking for azole resistance. ITS and β‐tubulin DNA sequencing was performed on 228 sequential clinical isolates. Broth microdilution susceptibility testing was performed for all isolates. A. fumigatus represented 74% of the isolates followed by A. flavus (12%). Nine A. fumigatus isolates from 9 different patients showed high MIC values to at least one azole, but cyp51A polymorphisms were detected in only 6 isolates and none correlated with known resistance mutations. The most troubling observation was that the minimum inhibi...
