Objectives Several studies described single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on pattern recognition receptor (PRR) such as toll-like receptors (TLRs), dendritic cell-associated C-type lectin-1 (Dectin-1/CLEC7A) genes of patients with invasive fungal infections (IFIs) caused by Candida and Aspergillus. We screened TLR4, Dectin-1 and PTX3 polymorphisms in a Turkish population with invasive aspergillosis (IA) underlying haematological malignancies.
