Abstract

We report the observation of hepato-splenic and kidneys candidiasis complicating the chemotherapy of a myeloblastic leukemia (LAM5b). Following the lack of effectiveness of a first line treatement, using amphotericine B liposomale and 5-fluorocytosine, implementation of an association of new molecules, a triazole of second generation (voriconazole) and an echinocandine (caspofungine) has allowed a successful result.
