Disseminated Infections With Talaromycesmarneffei In Non-AIDS Patients Given Monoclonal Antibodies Against CD20 And Kinase Inhibitors
Protein Kinase Inhibitors
Talaromyces (Penicillium) Marneffei
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4816330
Description:Infections with the fungus Talaromyces (formerly Penicillium) marneffei are rare in patients who do not have AIDS. We report disseminated T. marneffei infection in 4 hematology patients without AIDS who received targeted therapy with monoclonal antibodies against CD20 or kinase inhibitors during the past 2 years. Clinicians should be aware of this emerging complication, especially in patients from disease-endemic regions.
