Candida albicans purulent pericarditis treated successfully without surgical drainage

, : Candida albicans purulent pericarditis treated successfully without surgical drainage. Chest 102(3): 953-954

Cures of Candida pericarditis reported in the literature uniformly involved surgical drainage of the pericardial space. We report a patient with purulent pericarditis caused by Candida albicans who was treated successfully with antifungal chemotherapy combined with a single pericardiocentesis that did not completely evacuate the pericardial space. This case indicates that thoracotomy with surgical drainage of the pericardium is not mandatory for successful therapy of Candida pericarditis.
