Fungal Infections in Intestinal Transplantation

Anum Abbas, Allie Lewis, Diana Florescu

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Purpose of Review: Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) remain a cause of morbidity and mortality among solid organ transplant recipients. This review focuses of summarizing key clinical and diagnostics findings of yeast, mold, and endemic fungal infections in intestinal transplant recipients and recent advances in therapies. Recent Findings: There is limited data on IFIs in intestinal transplant recipients and the majority of infections are due to Candida. Several novel antifungal agents are in development as well as nanotechnology to combat antifungal resistance and emerging pathogens. Summary: Limited data regarding IFIs in intestinal transplant exist and further multi-center collaborative studies are needed to describe scope of IFIs in intestinal transplant recipients to improve the outcomes of this disease.
