Invasive fungal infections are an increasingly common problem in patients with cancer and other vulnerable groups. We report a case of hepatosplenic hialohifomycosis probably by Aspergillus sp. In a patient with acute leukemia, and prolonged neutropenia, treated with corticosteroids and broad spectrum antibiotics. A review concerning diagnosis, clinical course and treatment of this condition is presented. (Rev Méd Chile 2000; 128: 641-6).
