Abstract

Aspergillosis is a fungal disease that may be expressed by a diversity of clinical syndromes being produced by several of more than 170 Aspergillus species. The "Matei Balş" National Institute for Infectious Diseases has a long experience in diagnostic procedures and treatment of the immunosuppressed patients. Irrespective of the place of their residence, most patients with HIV infection and AIDS were investigated in the Institute in the last two decades. The first case of double central nervous infection (Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Aspergillus fumigatus) in a HIV positive patient is discussed.
