Abstract 6079


This study focuses on epidemiology of IFD before and after allo-HSCT in children and adults with Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL).


Single center prospective observational study included 86 patients with classical r/r HL who received allo-HSCT from 2002 to 2018. The median age was 27 (13-49) y.o., children (<18 yo) – 13% (n = 11). Allo-HSCT from MUD was performed in 45,4% (n = 39), MRD – 24,4% (n = 21), MMUD – 15,1% (n = 13), haplo – 15,1% (n = 13), with RIC (100%) and predominantly PTCY-based GvHD prophylaxis (71%). Primary antifungal prophylaxis was flu in 85%, secondary – vori (100%). EORTC/MSG 2008 criteria for diagnosis and response to therapy were used. Median follow-up time was 12 months [1-71].


Incidence of IFD before allo-HSCT was 12,8% (n = 11). Antifungal therapy before allo-HSCT was used in 81,8% pts with median duration – 2 months. Complete response to antifungal therapy was in 45,4% pts, partial response or stabilization – 36,4%, and 18,2% pts had an “active IFD”. Cumulative incidence of relapse or progression of IA after allo-HSCT was 18,2% with the median 49 day [19-79] after HSCT, which were successfully treated with vori in post HSCT period. Incidence of IFD after allo-HSCT for naïve patients was 17,6% (n = 13/74). Etiology of IFD after allo-HSCT was IA – 69%, invasive candidiasis – 15%, mucormycosis – 8% and 8% combined IFD caused by Asp. fumigatus + Rhizopus stolonifer. The median day of onset of IFD after allo-HSCT was day+ 114 [1-489]. Antifungal therapy was used in all patients: vori – 59%, mica– 17%, posa – 8%, L-AmB – 8% and combination L-AmB with caspo – 8%. Overall survival (OS) at 12 weeks from the diagnosis of IFD after allo-HSCT was 80%. The 2-year OS in children and adult with HL after allo-HSCT was 73,3%. Development of IFD after allo-HSCT do not decrease the 2-year OS rate (69,2% vs 74%, p = 0,77, figure 1a). The impact of prior IFD on 2-year OS in allo-HSCT recipients was not statistically significant in all group (63,6% vs 74,7%, p = 0,47, figure 1b), and separately in children and adults.


Incidence of IFD before allo-HSCT was 12,8%. Incidence of IFD after allo-HSCT was 17,6%. Despite the high incidence IFD before or after allo-HSCT didn’t influence the outcome in children and adults with Hodgkin lymphoma.
