Do you have an interesting case of an IFI in a patient with COVID-19? Or a challenging case of candidiasis or endemic mycoses? Please consider sending your case to us. We are compiling a range of cases for discussion that illustrate diagnostic and management challenges for these difficult infections. Select cases will be workshopped by our expert faculty.
The primary goal of this initiative is educating and preparing clinical providers and public health workers to address the needs of the population of COVID-19 patients most seriously compromised by the disease, specifically those with respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation who are at risk for or who subsequently develop COVID-19-associated pulmonary aspergillosis (CAPA) or other COVID-19-associated invasive fungal infections (CA-IFIs).
Published as an editor’s choice article in Open Forum Infectious Diseases on November 16, 2021, COVID-19-associated Invasive Fungal Infection was written by faculty members of the COVID-19-associated Fungal Infections Educational Initiative as well as a medical epidemiologist from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Brendan Jackson, MD, MPH). Under the leadership of John W. Baddley, MD, and George R. Thompson, III, MD, the authors addressed a range of salient topics.
