Table 2). Significantly, in recent years the proportion of infections caused by non-fumigatus Aspergillus species has increased considerably [11, 68]. Marked variation occur amongst centres in Aspergillus species causing aspergillosis, with some reporting a high incidence of infections caused by A. terreus or A. flavus [13]. Climatic factors and use of antifungal drugs may play a central role in the distribution of Aspergillus species causing these infections.
