ALDAMA CABALLERO, A  and  UNIVERSIDAD NACIONAL DE ASUNCION. Cátedra de Dermatología de la Facultad de Ciencias Médicas et al. DISSEMINATED ASPERGILLOSIS WITH SIGNIFICANT SKIN INVOLVEMENT. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2016, vol.49, n.2, pp.89-97. ISSN 1816-8949.

ABSTRACT Aspergillosis is an opportunistic fungal infection that primarily affects immunocompromised patients with neutropenia, in whom invasive disease often results in fulminant course. Cutaneous manifestations of aspergillosis are rare, occurring in 5-10% of cases scattered. We report a case of aspergillosis in an adult woman with severe neutropenia for hematologic disease, lung and sinus disease, having multiple ulceronecróticas skin lesions and mucous membranes, with fatal outcome. The mucocutaneous lesions of aspergillosis are nonspecific, forcing several differential diagnoses, and as in this case, the biopsy for histopathological and mycological study is required for diagnosis. Key Words:cutaneous aspergillosis disseminated aspergillosis, opportunistic infection, immunocompromised, neutropenia.
