Abstract
This study investigated invasive fungal infections (IFI) in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia who were included in the ELAM 02 protocol between 2005 and 2011. Among 387 patients, 15 had aspergillosis, 9 had candidiasis and 2 had mucormycosis. The most frequent localization was lung.After a median of 34 months, 2 deaths were attributable to IFI withoutany difference in survival between the groups with and without IFI.
