Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment-emergent hepatic injury or dysfunction [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after termination of the index treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data will be used of patients treated during the years 2005-2012 with a parenteral antifungal agent in the participating centers.

  • Treatment-emergent renal failure or dysfunction [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after termination of the index treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data will be used of patients treated during the years 2005-2012 with a parenteral antifungal agent in the participating centers.

  • Rehospitalization for the parenteral treatment of fungal infections [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after termination of the index treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data will be used of patients treated during the years 2005-2012 with a parenteral antifungal agent in the participating centers.

  • Death from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) [ Time Frame: Up to 13 years after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    On a long-term basis up to 13 years from 2005-2017.
