abstract

  • A 70-year-old woman with nodular, poorly differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma is the third reported patient with invasive pulmonary aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus terreus. This case differs from the two previously reported in that neither neutropenia nor broad spectrum antibiotics preceded the infection. A terreus should not be dismissed as a laboratory contaminant in pulmonary specimens, especially those from immunosuppressed patients.
