Aspergillus species have the capacity to cause devastating infection. More efficacious antifungal agents and improved diagnostics have improved survival from invasive Aspergillus, but mortality is still 30% and approaches 100% for Aspergillus infection of the central nervous or cardiovascular systems. A case of disseminated Aspergillus infection is presented in a patient following bone marrow transplantation and risk factors, testing, and management are discussed.
