Antifungals for Stem Cell Transplant Patients
Stem cell transplant patients at Phoenix Children's Hospital Patients are given antifungals to either prevent a fungal infection or treat a known or suspected infection.
Some examples of antifungals are:
- Amphotericin B.
Nystatin or Mycelex Troche are used as part of the patient's daily mouth care to prevent a condition called thrush (a fungal infection that looks like a white coating in the mouth and sometimes esophagus).
Please contact us if you have questions about antifungals, other medications or anything else related to the stem cell transplant process.
