Patients with chronic granulomatous disease are at increased risk for invasive aspergillosis. Cryptic Aspergillus species are being increasingly recognized as distinct causes of infection in this population. In this study, we describe the first case of Aspergillus udagawae vertebral osteomyelitis in a patient with X-linked chronic granulomatous disease.
Keywords: Aspergillus species; chronic granulomatous disease; osteomyelitis.
