abstract

  • Disseminated fungal infections in leukemic patients treated with cytotoxic drugs are an increasing problem. Confirmation of such infection either by clinical or laboratory examination can be extremely difficult. The findings in four such patients, using computed tomography, are described here. The presence of small non-enhancing lesions in the liver, spleen, or kidney in such patients is strongly suggestive of deep-seated fungal infections.
