Recovery from disseminated candidiasis in a premature neonate






Pediatrics 53(5): 748-752

Recovery from disseminated candidiasis in a premature neonate

Candida albicans septicaemia developed in a premature neonate receiving parenteral hyperalimentation and broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy. The septicaemia was followed by arthritis, osteomyelitis, meningitis, endophthalmitis and pyelonephritis. Prolonged treatment with amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine produced a satisfactory response.
