Abstract

Aspergillosis was first described by Micheli in 1729 and is thought to have named because of the similarity of the fruiting heads of the fungus and the aspergillum, a perforated globe used for sprinkling holy water. Invasive aspergillosis is associated with extremely high mortality rate, despite the availability of highly active antifungal treatments, in immunosuppressed patients like allogenic or autologuous bone marrow transplant (BMT) or solid-organ transplant receipients, prolonged neutropenia, chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) and with acquired immunodeficiency disease.
