Summary of "First report of a catheter-related bloodstream infection by Candida haemulonii in a children's hospital in Mexico City."

Candida haemulonii is an emergent, multi-resistant opportunistic pathogenic yeast that like Candida auris, can be misidentified when conventional diagnostic methods are used. Timely molecular identification using DNA sequence analysis variation in the internal transcriber spacer region, ITS1-ITS4 and the 28S ribosomal DNA gene (28S rDNA), and in vitro antifungal susceptibility assessment can lead to rapid therapeutic success.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection with a fungus of the genus CANDIDA. It is usually a superficial infection of the moist areas of the body and is generally caused by CANDIDA ALBICANS. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.

An important nosocomial fungal infection with species of the genus CANDIDA, most frequently CANDIDA ALBICANS. Invasive candidiasis occurs when candidiasis goes beyond a superficial infection and manifests as CANDIDEMIA, deep tissue infection, or disseminated disease with deep organ involvement.

Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

Infection of the VULVA and VAGINA with a fungus of the genus CANDIDA.
