Transient fungaemia due to Candida pelliculosa in a patient with AIDS.

Abstract

Candida pelliculosa Redaelli (syn. Hansenula anomala) was isolated from blood cultures of a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. The transient candidaemia was apparently associated with intravenous drug addiction. The isolate was identified by standard methods such as API 20 C Aux and 16 discs carbon auxanogram. The isolate was sensitive to amphotericin B, 5-fluorocytosine and ketoconazole. This organism adds to the growing list of Candida species associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
