Özet

Candida lipolytica has infrequently been identified as a cause of infection and is associated mostly with vascular catheter-related fungaemia. Patients reported in the literature have been successfully treated with catheter removal or amphotericin B treatment. We report 2 infants with C. lipolytica fungaemia unresponsive to catheter removal and amphotericin B therapy and treated successfully with the addition of caspofungin to amphotericin B.
