The morbidity of invasive aspergillosis in burn patients is low but the diagnosis is difficult and the mortality rate is high. A severe burned patient at the Vietnam National Institute of Burn was suspected of fungal wound infection (FWI) with fungal growth on the wound. The diagnosis of FWI caused by Aspergillus fumigatus was made by isolation and histological examination. This may be the first reported case of FWI caused by Aspergillus fumigatus in Vietnam.
