Abstract

Invasive aspergillosis is a rare but important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with AIDS. In the majority of patients, invasive aspergillosis involves the lungs. Extrapulmonary involvement with total splenic infarction has not been previously described. We illustrate a patient who developed total splenic infarction and septic emboli to the brain from Aspergillus.
