Saccharomyces boulardii fungemia in a patient with severe burns


Saccharomyces boulardii fungemia in a patient with severe burns



Annales Francaises d'Anesthesie et de Reanimation 14(4): 356-358



ISSN/ISBN: 0750-7658

PMID: 8572392

A case of Saccharomyces boulardii fungaemia in a burn patient is reported. S. boulardii was administered in order to improve the digestive tolerance to enteral nutrition. After a surgical procedure, a sepsis syndrome occurred, with a white blood cell count increase, abdominal meteorism and respiratory insufficiency, associated with seven blood cultures positive to S. boulardii. Digestive translocation of the yeast seems to be the most likely origin of this fungaemia. Some fungaemias from S. boulardii have been published. However it is not usual to find such severe clinical features as in our case which leads us to reconsider the therapeutic use of S. boulardii in situations including a gastrointestinal tract suffering.
