 en Allergic fungal sinusitis secondary to Acremonium check for this species in other resources species causing unilateral visual loss
W K Mulwafu, D E Lubbe, M. Garb

Abstract

A wide range of fungi have been associated with Allergic Fungal Sinusitis (AFS) or Eosinophilic fungal rhinosinusitis ( EFRS) as it is known in some institutions. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of aggressive, invasive AFS due to Acremonium check for this species in other resources species occurring in an immunocompetent patient and leading to unilateral visual loss. Literature on AFS is reviewed.

Keywords
Eosinophilic fungal rhinosinusitis, Allergic fungal sinusitis, Acremonium species, visual loss.
