摘要

Two patients who received BMT for treatment of severe aplastic anemia and AML-M2, developed fungemia during leukopenia. The organisms responsible for the infections were Candida parapsilosis and Rhodotorula glutinis, respectively. Early diagnosis of fungemia in these two patients was made by visualization of fungal blastospores in peripheral blood (PB) smears. These two cases illustrate that cytologic examination of PB smears is a useful method for early detection of fungus infection in BMT patients with leukopenia and unexplained fever in spite of appropriate antibiotic treatment.
