Abstract

An eleven-year-old boy presented with one month's history of fever and weight loss. He was diagnosed with Acute Mycloid Leukemia (AML-M2). During treatment he developed recurrent infections with neutropenia requiring prolonged antibiotics and subsequently developed invasive aspergillosis. He was treated with amphotericin B and Voriconazole. This case shows the efficacy and safety of combined antifungal therapy, including voriconazole, for invasive aspergillosis complicating AML.
