Abstract

Candidemia in children

Invasive fungal infections, particularly candidemia, are more common in seriously unwell or immunocompromised children. The two most common causes of candidemia in children are Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis. Children with candidemia have a higher risk of morbidity and mortality, longer hospital stays, and higher healthcare expenses.Patients who are candidates for empiric therapy can be identified using candidemia risk factors. Long-term ICU stay, immunosuppression, prior bacterial infection, and recent surgery, as well as the use of a central venous catheter, mechanical ventilation, and/or total parenteral nutrition, are all risk factors.
