Abstract

Galactomannan (GM) is used to diagnose aspergillosis. We present a case of a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation recipient with fusariosis who received early antifungal treatment based on GM positivity. Additionally, 3 . Fusarium isolates tested positive for GM. . Fusarium is another mold containing GM. GM might be useful for diagnosing fusariosis in high-risk patients.
