Samenvatting

Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in children with cancer. Studies on the clinical characteristics of IFI in children with solid tumors are limited. This Dutch retrospective cohort study reviewed the medical records of 61 children with solid tumors to analyze the clinical characteristics during their full treatment period. Seven IFI episodes were reported in 6/61 patients (10%), all diagnosed with intermediate-risk or high-risk Wilms tumor or neuroblastoma. Larger studies are necessary to reveal the determinants of IFI in this group of patients and the value of fungal prophylaxis.
