Confrontation anatomo-clinique. A propos d'un cas d'aspergillose pulmonaire invasive [Anatomo-clinical correlation. A case of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis]
Revue Médicale De Liège
This report describes a case of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis affecting a young female patient who had benefited from a liver transplantation for a fulminant hepatic failure. Infections following liver transplantation can happen but in this case the short delay to the fatal outcome is unusual (6 days). Corticotherapy given prior to transplantation could have impaired the immune system. The authors discuss the infections due to Aspergillus species and particularly invasive pulmonary aspergillosis.
