Abstract

We encountered a case of a 73-year-old man with acute myeloid leukemia who developed Trichosporon asahii systemic infection while on itraconazole prophylaxis during severe neutropenia. Cryptococcal antigen was useful for diagnosis. Although itraconazole was ineffective in protecting against trichosporonosis, treatment was successful with voriconazole following liposomal amphotericin B.
