Improving the effectiveness of the treatment of critically ill and their longer survival has increased the existence of later complications rarely seen before. Among the hospital-acquired infections such complications include infection of mold fungi. The paper presents difficulties in diagnosing and therapy of Aspergillus mold infections illustrating them with the description of cases when Aspergillus infection occurred during the treatment of critically ill, leading with treatment delay to high mortality.
