Abstract

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a heterogeneous condition due to defects in NADPH oxidase characterized by granuloma formation and increased susceptibility to invasive infections, in particular moulds. The use of broad-spectrum, mould-active antifungal prophylaxis has improved mortality. However rare resistant moulds have emerged as important pathogens. Diagnosis of these rare fungi requires molecular techniques, and treatment data are limited. Herein, we present a case of with disseminated Rasamsonia infection involving the heart.
