Abstract

We found significant correlation between the incidence of severe influenza and Aspergillus antigenemia among medical intensive care unit patients for 7-month observation (coefficient γ = 0.976, p <. 0.001). High-level ambient pollution was noticed for 2 months before the epidemic, highlighting that influenza patients might coinfect with aspergillosis in the community.
