Serum galactomannan antigen detection was used for the diagnosis and follow-up of cardiac aspergillosis after surgery in 2 nonneutropenic patients. The galactomannan index, developed in response to surgical and antifungal therapies, could prove to be a valuable method for the diagnosis and follow-up of fungal infections in such patients.
