Catheter-related fungemia by Hansenula anomala



Catheter-related fungemia by Hansenula anomala



Archives of Internal Medicine 149(3): 709, 713-709, 713



A case is reported in a 51-yr-old woman with acute promyelocytic leukaemia, who presented with fever. H. anomala was isolated from 8 of 9 blood cultures obtained from peripheral veins. The Hickman catheter tip, removed and processed semiquantitatively, showed >15 colony-forming units of H. anomala. Fever persisted despite withdrawal of the catheter and treatment with amphotericin B (250 mg) was required.
