Author information

First Department of Internal Medicine, Kurume Medical University.


A 63-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with fever and cough. Candidemia was diagnosed by blood culture and culture of IVH catheter. Although, the patient was treated with fluconazole, clinical symptoms and chest radiographic findings worsened. After micafungin was replaced with fluconazole, her symptoms, chest radiographic findings improved and stabilized. It is suggested that micafungin is useful for the treatment of candidemia associated with Candida parapsilosis.
