Spontaneous pneumothorax complicating pulmonary mycetoma in patients with acute leukemia.

Rev Infect Dis 1990 Jul-Aug;12(4):611-7

Department of Human Biopathology, Pathology and Medicine III, University La Sapienza, Rome, Italy.

Pneumothorax caused by the rupture of a mycetoma into the pleural space is rarely reported in patients undergoing intensive cytotoxic therapy for hematologic malignancies. We reviewed 46 episodes of mycetoma that developed in 43 patients undergoing antineoplastic therapy; six (13%) of these episodes were further complicated by the occurrence of pneumothorax that developed after bone marrow recovery with return to normal granulocyte count. Etiologic agents included Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus fumigatus plus Blastoschizomyces capitatus, and Mucor (one case each). Read More
