Abstract

1,3-Beta-D-Glucan serum levels have demonstrated good diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of candidiasis in adult patients, but normal levels for children have not been established. We found higher 1,3-beta-D-glucan levels in children than those previously reported in adults.
