Abstract:

Invasive aspergillosis presents a formidable problem for both diagnosis andtherapy. Therefore, prevention is a very important strategy in controlling thisdisease. Preventing invasive aspergillosis demands a clear understanding of theenvironmental sources of Aspergillus spp. and how this mould is transmitted topatients. Insight into the sources of exposure, mechanisms of transmission, andhost susceptibility to infection are vital to appropriately direct preventive strategiesto those settings where the risk of infection is the highest and consequently theimpact of prevention the greatest.
