Abstract

A patient receiving total parenteral alimentation through a central catheter developed fatal Candida sepsis originating from suppurative phlebitis of a peripheral vein. This case underscores the importance of aggressively pursuing all potential endovascular sources of fungemia in susceptible patients: those on antibiotics, with chemical phlebitis, and hyperglycemia.
