• A 15-year-old girl developed isolated cardiac aspergillosis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Predisposing factors included severe graft-vs-host disease with gastrointestinal tract involvement and immunosuppressive therapy including cyclosporine. The patient died of cardiopulmonary failure 11 weeks after transplantation.
