Hansenula anomala fungemia in a patient with acute myelocytic leukemia



Hansenula anomala fungemia in a patient with acute myelocytic leukemia



Japanese Journal of Medical Mycology 34(4): 451-457



A case is reported in a 35-yr-old woman with acute myelocytic leukaemia who developed fungaemia while receiving immunosuppressive therapy and intravenous hyperalimentation (IVH). Cultures of peripheral blood samples and IVH catheter tips grew Hansenula anomala. Symptoms resolved after treatment with intravenous fluconazole (400 mg/d) but the patient died of disseminated intravascular coagulation associated with the leukaemia.
