Fungal infections of the lung in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fungal infections of the lungs are relatively common and potentially life-threatening conditions in immunocompromised children. The role of imaging in children with lung mycosis is to delineate the extension of pulmonary involvement, to assess response to therapy, and to monitor for adverse sequelae such as bronchiectasis and cavitation. The aim of this paper is to show imaging findings in a series of patients with fungal pneumonia from two tertiary children’s hospitals, to discuss differential diagnoses and to show how imaging findings can vary depending on the host immune response.
