The detection of fungi in the human respiratory tract may represent contamination, colonization or a respiratory infection. To develop effective management strategies, a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of the lung fungal microbiome is required. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to define the “mycobiome” of mechanically ventilated patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) using broncho-alveolar aspirate (“sputum”) samples and correlate this with clinical parameters and the bacterial microbiota. To this...
