Aspergillus fumigatus azole resistance has emerged as a global health problem. We evaluated the in vitro antifungal susceptibility of 221 clinical A. fumigatus isolates according to CLSI guidelines. Sixty-one isolates exhibiting MICs at the epidemiological cutoff value (ECV) for itraconazole or above the ECV for any triazole were checked for CYP51A mutations. No mutations were documented, even for the isolates (1.8%) with high voriconazole MICs, indicating that triazoles may be used safely to treat aspergillosis in Brazil.
