Hepatobiliary candidiasis in chronic lymphatic leukaemia

Hepatobiliary candidiasis in chronic lymphatic leukaemia

BMJ 299(6715): 1568-1568

A case is reported in a 64-yr-old woman with chronic lymphatic leukaemia who presented with fever, severe oral Candida infection, signs of pneumonia, mild jaundice and tender hepatomegaly. Ultrasonography and subsequent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic examination showed a widespread intraductal biliary cast and multiple small communicating microabscesses. Ultrasound-guided biopsy and microscopy showed mycelia, identified as C. albicans.
