Answer

Answer

Offer maintenance therapy to suppress disease reactivation or recurrent disease in patients infected with HIV or in other individuals who are immunocompromised.

Ensure appropriate follow-up care to monitor for possible recurrence.

Patients with ongoing immune deficiencies may require prolonged or lifelong maintenance therapy with triazole agents to prevent recurrences.
