The robust and rapid role of molecular testing in precision fungal diagnostics: A case report

Med Mycol Case Rep. 2020 Feb 13;27:77-80. doi: 10.1016/j.mmcr.2020.02.003. eCollection 2020 Mar.

Abstract

Diagnosis of invasive fungal disease remains an ongoing challenge for clinicians, while continuously evolving treatment regimens increase patient risk for invasive infection. This case highlights how molecular testing led to the diagnosis of co-infection with two fungal pathogens producing invasive disease in a hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipient with graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).
