Clin Case Rep. 2022 Jul 25;10(7):e5993. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.5993. eCollection 2022 Jul.

ABSTRACT

Although Aspergillus meningitis is poorly responsive to current guidelines for treatment, we describe a dramatic response of Aspergillus meningitis in a patient to treatment using a combination of corticosteroids with guideline’s suggested antifungal agents. Administration of corticosteroids in patients with Aspergillus meningitis is rarely reported in previous studies.
