Conclusions: Overall results of surgery in this cohort were good and number of complications was low. Therapy with antifungals was diverse. Surgical treatment of aspergilloma can be life-saving for patients suffering of haemoptysis, and patients with restricted disease and well-preserved pulmonary capacity may benefit from surgery. Careful patient selection is crucial. PMID: 31737315 [PubMed]

Conclusions: The PK simulations in this study suggest that transplant recipients on voriconazole prophylaxis against invasive candidiasis or aspergillosis are likely to achieve the target concentrations associated with the desired treatment outcomes if the maintenance dose is 200 mg twice daily. However, Aspergillus spp. with high minimal inhibitory concentrations could require higher maintenance doses.

los G Abstract SUMMARYAspergillus fumigatus is a saprotrophic fungus; its primary habitat is the soil. In its ecological niche, the fungus has learned how to adapt and proliferate in hostile environments. This capacity has helped the fungus to resist and survive against human host defenses and, further, to be responsible for one of the most devastating lung infections in terms of morbidity and mortality. In this review, we will provide (i) a description of the biological cycle of A. fumigatus; (ii) a historical perspective of the spectrum of aspergillus disease and the current epidemiological status of these infec...

This study reported a case of maxillary aspergillosis with a complete headache and eye pain after tooth extraction with a large abscess in the relative jaw. Tenderness in the right temporal, lower jaw numbness and right eye proptosis was found. Histopathological examination was the suggestion of maxillary sinusitis with a fungal ball of aspergillus.
