Epidemiology of invasive fungal infections in kidney transplant patients
Nephrology and Urology Research Center, Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran
I recently read with great interest the review article "Epidemiology and treatment approaches in management of invasive fungal infections" by Kriengkauykiat et al1 that was published in your journal. This review drew attention to the steadily growing number of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) that are due to the increasing number of severely immunocompromised patients. Despite advances in antifungal regimens in terms of prophylaxis and treatment, IFIs may lead to high mortality rates in solid organ recipients.
