Earlier experience with micafungin demonstrated a successful outcome in treating pulmonary aspergillosis in leukemic patients. We report a case of renal transplant recipient (RTR) who developed disseminated invasive aspergillosis. The patient was treated with micafungin with complete clinical and radiological response.
