Abstract

The significance of blood cultures positive for Aspergillus species for patients with cancer remains unclear. The significance of aspergillemia in 36 cancer patients over a 10-year period was evaluated. True aspergillemia was rare, occurred late in the course of aspergillosis, and was seen exclusively in patients with hematologic malignancies.
