Scrotal aspergillosis associated with fournier's gangrene in a patient with cirrhosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pulmonary aspergillosis is a well known entity occurring in immunocompetent persons. Cutaneous aspergillosis, on the other hand, has been described in cases of suppressed immunity. Recently, invasive aspergillosis has been reported in patients with subtle immune dysfunction such as those with critical illness and advanced cirrhosis. We report a case of scrotal aspergillosis in association with Fournier's gangrene and necrotizing fasciitis in a patient with cirrhosis.
