The burden of Aspergillus terreus around the world!


The TerrNet Study, supported by EFISG, ISHAM and ECMM investigated the prevalence and amphotericin B susceptibility of Aspergillus terreus species complex infections around the world.

Infections due to A. terreus species complex were detected in 21 countries and 38 centres with an overall prevalence of 5.2% (370 A. terreus /7116 molds) among mold infections. High amphotericin B MICs were frequently observed and crossed all cryptic species. Infections were reported from all over the world with Spain and Austria representing the countries with the highest density of A. terreus isolates collected.

A. terreus cause a wide spectrum of aspergillosis and the majority of cryptic species displayed high AMB MICs.
