Rights and Permissions

Post-operative Aspergillus mediastinitis is regarded to be a devastating infection, usually affecting patients undergoing cardiothoracic surgery with specific predisposing factors characterised by a high mortality and chronic morbidity. Patient outcome after such a complication is extremely poor despite antifungal therapy and surgery. We describe the case of an immunocompetent 2-month-old child with obstructed supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous circulation (TAPVC) and severe pulmonary artery hypertension, who underwent TAPVC repair through median sternotomy and developed post-operative mediastinitis due to Aspergillus flavus.
