Core Tip In our center, invasive aspergillosis had a low incidence but a high mortality rate among liver transplant recipients. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis was the most prevalent form of infection. Nodules, pleural effusion, and halo signs were the most commonly observed findings on chest computed tomography scans. Antifungal prophylaxis was more prevalent in the case group than in the control group. At week 6 of antifungal treatment, more than 60% of patients experienced complete recovery or relative response to therapy.
