Abstract
A case of persistent candidemia in a preterm neonate caused by Candida fermentati, identified by sequencing of the internally transcribed spacer region of rDNA, is described. The neonate was treated for 30 days with combination therapy of AmBisome and caspofungin with successful outcome and no drug-related side effects were observed.
