Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary outcome will be Global Success (complete and partial response) at 6 weeks based on the combination of clinical, mycological and radiologic response.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Global Success (GS) at Wk 12, Favorable response (FR) & survival at Wks 6 & 12. GS and FR by infection site, overall frequency of emergent & recurrent fungal infections at Wks 6 & 12, duration of FR, and relationship of galactomannan to clinical outcome
