A 6-year nationwide study of fungemia in Denmark was performed using data from an active fungemia surveillance program and from laboratory information systems in nonparticipating regions. A total of 2,820 episodes of fungemia were recorded. The incidence increased from 2004 to 2007 (7.7 to 9.6/100,000) and decreased slightly from 2008 to 2009 (8.7 to 8.6/100,000). The highest incidences were seen at the extremes of age (i.e., 11.3 and 37.1/100,000 for those <1 and 70 to 79 years old… CONTINUE READING
