Candidemia in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome


Mycoses in AIDS patients: 75-82
Candidemia in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
Positive blood cultures for Candida spp. during Jan. 1981-Nov. 1989 were reviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. 13 patients with AIDS had candidaemia. The most common species were C. albicans isolated in 8 patients, C. parapsilosis in 4 and C. krusei in 1. Intravascular catheters were present in 12 of the 13 patients, 9 of which were indwelling or central catheters. Neutropenia was present in 7 patients. Treatment was instituted in 10 patients of whom 6 responded.
