Abstract:
A 30-y-old man with Crohn's disease developed fungemia with Candida albicans. Subsequently, during therapy with fluconazole, Candida glabrata was repeatedly isolated from his blood. Myocardial abscesses were detected in the papillary muscles and interventricular septum. The infection was cured with amphotericin B lipid complex and 5-flucytosine, followed by voriconazole for 18 months.
