IFI was diagnosed when at least one of the following three conditions were presented: 1) positive culture from normally sterile sites (e.g., blood or cerebrospinal fluid specimens) or deep tissue specimens, and/or the presence of budding yeast, hyphae, or pseudo-hyphae; 2) histopathological examination of samples collected by needle aspiration or from a biopsy specimen showing hyphae or yeast with evidence of associated tissue damage (i.e., either microscopically or unequivocally demonstrated by imaging analysis); 3) fungal colonization that was not classified as an invasive fungal infection unless this was supported by the same positive culture outcome from two independent occasions, or from clinical and/or radiological evidence and/ or in response to anti-fungal agents (14).
