Abstract: 

Introduction/Background: Healthcare-associated infections with aspergillus pose a serious threat for those most severely immune suppressed patients. Outbreaks of nosocomial aspergillosis have occurred mainly among neutropenic patients. These have occurred in association with environmental disturbances: hospital construction; contaminated fireproofing materials, or air filters in the hospital ventilation system; and via contaminated carpeting. It behooves those in the practice of patient care to prevent these situations before they occur, as opposed to dealing with them once they happen
