Multi-organ toxicity secondary to CD19-directed CAR T-cell therapy. a Contrast-enhanced CT abdomen demonstrating a non-inflamed baseline state of GI mucosal tissue prior to CAR T therapy. b Panmural swelling of the sigma (left panel), ascending colon (middle panel), and stomach. c Non-pathologic CT of the brain. d Axial FLAIR-weighted (left), T1-weighted contrast-enhanced (middle), and diffusion-weighted (right) MRI displaying no evidence of cerebral edema, white matter lesions, diffusion restriction, microbleeds, meningeal enhancement or contrast enhancing lesions. e High-resolution CT thorax with bilateral fungal infiltrates observing the typical halo configuration 6 weeks prior to CAR T-cell transfusion. f On day − 3 the right-sided infiltrates have decreased in size. The left lung is collapsed due to malignant pleural effusion. g Lung parenchyma exhibiting an infiltration of non-dimorphic blastoconidial morphology consistent with Candida glabrata. h PAS staining of a lung specimen highlights septated hiphae and acute-angle branching, features consistent of with aspergillus infection
