Abstract

Aspergillus flavus is generally considered to be an opportunistic organism, rarely causing clinical infections in the immunocompetent host. We present a case of a 79-year-old man without history of immunocompromise who developed a severe aspergillus wound infection in an open wound following repair of a traumatic duodenal perforation. Despite aggressive treatment, this invasive infection contributed significantly to his eventual demise.
