• A 4½-month-old male infant with systemic candidiasis had anuria secondary to Candida albicans fungus balls impacted in the renal pelves. The patient was treated with temporary urinary diversion, amphotericin B, and flucytosine. Six weeks after therapy had been concluded, the patient had C albicans arthritis of the right hip and responded to a second course of amphotericin B and flucytosine therapy. This article discusses immunologic evaluation and presents a literature review.
