    • Green Herring Syndrome: Bacterial Infection in Patients With Mucormycosis Cavitary Lung Disease 

      Peixoto, Driele; Hammond, Sarah P.; Issa, Nicolas C.; Madan, Rachna; Gill, Ritu R.; Milner, Danny A.; Colson, Yolonda L.; Koo, Sophia; Baden, Lindsey R.; Marty, Francisco M. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Mucormycosis is a life-threatening fungal disease in patients with hematological malignancies. The diagnosis of pulmonary mucormycosis is particularly challenging. We describe 3 mucormycosis cases with an uncommon presentation ...
    • Invasive Fusariosis in the Voriconazole Era: Single-Center 13-Year Experience 

      Stempel, Jessica M.; Hammond, Sarah P.; Sutton, Deanna A.; Weiser, Linda M.; Marty, Francisco M. (Oxford University Press, 2015)

    • Meta-Analysis and Cost Comparison of Empirical versus Pre-Emptive Antifungal Strategies in Hematologic Malignancy Patients with High-Risk Febrile Neutropenia 

      Fung, Monica; Kim, Jane; Marty, Francisco M.; Schwarzinger, Michaël; Koo, Sophia (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Background: Invasive fungal disease (IFD) causes significant morbidity and mortality in hematologic malignancy patients with high-risk febrile neutropenia (FN). These patients therefore often receive empirical antifungal ...
    • Molecular Methods To Improve Diagnosis and Identification of Mucormycosis 

      Hammond, Sarah Page; Bialek, Ralf; Milner, Danny Arnold; Petschnigg, Eva M.; Baden, Lindsey Robert; Marty, Francisco Miguel (American Society for Microbiology, 2011)
      Mucormycosis is difficult to diagnose. Samples from suspected cases often fail to grow Mucorales in microbiologic cultures. We identified all hematologic malignancy and stem cell transplant patients diagnosed with proven ...
