Abstract
We performed retrospective study to identify the characteristics of invasive Trichosporon asahii infection. A total of 102 patients with T. asahii were identified including 18 (18%) with invasive infection. Invasive infection was associated with indwelling central venous catheter (94% vs 54%, P = .001), prior antifungal agent use (50% vs 18%, P = .01), hematologic malignancy (33% vs 7%, P = .006), and end-stage renal disease (28% vs 7%, P = .02). Patients with invasive infections had higher in-hospital mortality than patients with noninvasive infections (61% vs 27%, P = .006). Those with the above risk factors should be monitored for the development of invasive T. asahii infection.

Lay summary

Patients with indwelling central venous catheter, prior antifungal agent use, hematologic malignancy, and end-stage renal disease were associated with invasive Trichosporon asahii infection. Patients with invasive infections had higher in-hospital mortality than patients without invasive infection.
