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.
