The epidemiological and antifungal susceptibility data for 35 episodes of candidemia in intensive care units (ICU) in 2007 were evaluated by prospective active surveillance. The incidence of fungaemia was 39.1 cases per 1000 ICU admissions and 2.85 cases per 1000 patient-days. The crude mortality was 65.7%; 70.8% of the fatalities occurred within 7 days of admission to the ICU. Only 2 species were isolated, Candida parapsilosis (77.1%) and Candida albicans (22.9%).
