Hansenula anomala fungemia

Hansenula anomala fungemia

Reviews of Infectious Diseases 10(6): 1182-1186

A case is reported in a 34-yr-old man with acute myelocytic leukaemia who repeatedly developed fever after receiving chemotherapy through a central venous catheter. Blood cultures yielded H. anomala, which was also isolated from the catheter tip. The patient received a short course of amphotericin B (total dose 180 mg), after the yeast was tested for susceptibility to various antimycotic agents. At follow-up, 12 months later, there was no evidence of fungaemia recurrence.
