Over the last 10 to 15 years, the treatment options for patients with hematologic malignancies have seen the blossom of a large number of new agents and new therapeutic strategies like cellular therapies.
Despite achieving remarkable improvements in the management of patients with malignant hematologic disorders, infectious complications still represent a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, thereby limiting the effectiveness of curative strategies.
In this respect, knowledge of the epidemiology and risk factors of infectious complications as well as of the available therapeutic armamentarium may represent a tool of paramount importance to optimize the treatment of hematologic patients.
The aim of this Special Issue is to summarize the current data on bacterial, fungal, and viral infections in hematologic patients, providing the reader with a guide to design an appropriate therapeutic approach to the prophylaxis and treatment of infectious complications.
