Abstract During a seven month period, 367 molds were isolated from hospital air and 23 from patients. Aspergillus niger accounted for 56\% of air isolates, but for only 17\% of patient isolates. Aspergillus fumigatus was rarely found in air (0.3\%), but was the dominant isolate among our patients (44\%). We conclude, that different Aspergillus species may have a varied aptitude to colonize immunocompromised patients.
