Diagnosis and treatment of invasive fungal diseases in patients with severe liver diseases

DOI: 10.3969/j.issn.1001-5256.2016.09.012

  • Invasive fungal diseases( IFDs) are an important factor affecting the prognosis of patients with severe liver diseases,and their early diagnosis remains a challenge for clinicians. The four most commonly seen IFDs are candidiasis,aspergillosis,cryptococcosis,and pneumocystis pneumonia. We should pay attention to the risk of developing IFDs in patients with severe liver diseases during clinical management. Particularly,early diagnosis and proper treatment of IFDs are important in high- risk patients. These are vital to improving the prognosis of patients with severe liver diseases.
