Treatment & Outcomes of Aspergillosis
How is Aspergillosis Treated?
Aspergillosis requires treatment with antifungal medication prescribed by a doctor. Voriconazole is currently the first-line treatment for invasive aspergillosis. There are other medications that can be used to treat invasive aspergillosis in patients who cannot take voriconazole or who have not responded to voriconazole. These include itraconazole, lipid amphotericin formulations, caspofungin, micafungin, and posaconazole. Whenever possible, immunosuppressive medications should be discontinued or decreased.
Healthcare providers can review the most up-to-date aspergillosis treatment and practice guidelines from the Infectious Disease Society of America.
