is an ascomycetous fungus causing invasive disease in immuno-compromised patients. Neutropenia, contaminated venous catheters, previous antifungal treatment are risk factors for this infection. We report a case of fungemia with pulmonary, renal and skin localizations in a 6-year-old boy with prolonged neutropenia because of three allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantations. The infection was controlled by aggressive and strictly monitored combination therapy with voriconazole and liposomial-ampthotericine-B along with durable recover from neutropenia.
