Abstract

is a heterobasidiomycetous yeast related to the smut fungi in the genus . species are usually isolated from plants and rarely from clinical specimens. We report what is believed to be the first paediatric case of central venous catheter (CVC)-related fungaemia associated with . Prompt removal of the CVC in conjunction with anti-fungal therapy resulted in a successful outcome.
