Pichia anomala (Candida pelliculosa) fungemia in a patient with sickle cell disease



Pichia anomala (Candida pelliculosa) fungemia in a patient with sickle cell disease



Mycopathologia 176(3-4): 273-277



This case report discusses a patient with sickle cell disease who presented with fungemia from Pichia anomala (teleomorph: Candida pelliculosa). The organism was identified as P. anomala by MALDI-TOF VITEK mass spectrometry and VITEK 2 yeast identification card. Pichia anomala should be considered in sickle cell patients with recurrent fungemia.
