Abstract: A case of autopsy-proven fungal pneumonia in a relapsed leukaemia patient is reported. The fungus Hormographiella aspergillata was cultured from two bronchoalveolar fluid samples and identified through morphological examination and ITS2 sequence analysis. In addition, galactomannan was detected in eight consecutive serum samples, which suggested a co-infection with Aspergillus species. The patient was treated with caspofungin.
