Combined amphotericin B-flucytosine therapy in Aspergillus pneumonia.

The incidence of aspergillosis is increasing while the prognosis remains dismal. Standard single-drug therapy with amphotericin B offers unacceptably low cure rates. A patient with Aspergillus pneumonia was treated with a synergistic combination of amphotericin B and flucytosine. A prompt clinical response and progressive resolution of the infection were observed. Combination therapy appeared to decrease the dose of amphotericin B needed for effective therapy. It may provide improved results with decreased toxic effects.[1]
