Hematological Disease | Registry of Febrile Neutropenia and Invasive Fungal Infections

Hematological Disease research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

Objectives: 1. To assess the percentage of febrile neutropenia and suspected fungal-related febrile episodes in patients receiving chemotherapy 2. To explore the percentage/distribution of infectious origins of febrile neutropenia 3. To explore the percentage/distribution of infectious pathogens of febrile neutropenia 4. To explore clinical outcomes of different infectious origins/pathogens in febrile neutropenia episodes 5. To have a clear view of therapeutic actions in the management of hematological patients with febrile neutropenia and suspected fungal-related febrile episodes
