In vitro susceptibility testing in Aspergillus species: an update
The present article is a review of in vitro susceptibility testing in Aspergillus spp. Different methods of susceptibility testing are discussed, including macro- and microdilution, disk-based diffusion, Etest, and other commercial tests. In addition, the clinical implications of in vitro testing are discussed, taking into account intrinsic resistance and the recent emergence of azole resistance among Aspergillus spp. against a range of antifungal compounds.
