Abstract

We performed a retrospective single center study to define the epidemiology of bacteremias or invasive mycoses in pediatric allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (HSCT) from matched related donors (MRD) or alternative donors (AD). During 119213 days of follow-up, 156 infections were observed: 130 bacteremias (27 in MRD-HSCT and 103 in AD-HSCT recipients) and 26 invasive mycoses (8 in MRD-HSCT and 18 in AD-HSCT recipients). Overall, the risk of bacteremia was fivefold that of invasive mycosis (P
