Echinocandins are not active against basidiomycetous yeasts, such as Cryptococcus neoformans, Trichosporon, and Rhodotorula species, and zygomycosis. We present a patient with renal failure and candidemia, who developed a breakthrough fungal infection with cryptococcemia and cryptococcuria while receiving micafungin therapy.
