Abstract

is a yeast that rarely causes human infections. The first case of fungaemia in a premature neonate is reported; it was successfully treated with liposomal amphotericin B. Biochemical identification of the yeast was performed by Vitek II and API and was confirmed by rRNA gene sequencing. as a human pathogenic yeast is uncommon to hospitalized neonates and immunocompromised individuals.
