Fever, Rash, and Myalgias of Disseminated Candidiasis During Antifungal Therapy

Arch Intern Med. 1981;141(9):1233. doi:10.1001/archinte.1981.00340090129031

• A patient with acute lymphocytic leukemia was seen initially with the signs of fever, rash, and myalgias that occurred sequentially despite antifungal therapy. Culture- and necropsy-proved Candida tropicalis infection was responsible. The appearance of myositis in a patient receiving adequate amphotericin B therapy for a sensitive C tropicalis infection suggests a poor prognosis.
