|Issue Date:||2005||Journal:||Journal of Infection||Abstract:||Catheter removal is now the standard recommendation of catheter-related fungemia even when tunneled devices are used. However, in the clinical practice, this procedure is not always without risks. Antibiotic-lock technique can resolve many cases of catheter-related bacteraemia, but cure of catheter-related candidemia by this method has been attempted in very few instances, reviewed in this article. Herein, we report a case of non-complicated Candida glabrata fungemia related to a Hickman catheter used for parenteral nutrition, cured with intraluminal amphotericin B in addition to systemic therapy. This case demonstrates that 'antifungal-lock therapy' can be effectively used in selected cases of catheter-related candidemia.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50626||ISSN:||0163-4453||DOI:||10.1016/j.jinf.2004.08.034||Source:||Journal of Infection[ISSN 0163-4453],v. 51(3), p. 85-87 (Octubre 2005)|
