Abstract

We have reported the successful treatment of a patient with acute leukemia complicated by pulmonary aspergillosis, a commonly fatal situation. Specific diagnosis was obtained easily by transbronchial lung biopsy. Our therapeutic approach included aggressive treatment of both the underlying malignant process and the aspergillosis with a combination of amphotericin B and rifampin.
