Abstract

We compared costs, length of stay, and mortality between adults with Candida albicans and Candida glabrata bloodstream infections. Early evidence of C glabrata, as defined by a positive culture within 2 days of admission, was associated with higher costs ($56,026 vs $32,810; P = .04) and longer hospital stays (19.7 vs 14.5 days; P = .05) compared with early evidence of C albicans. Mortality was similar between the groups.
