Abstract

Nowadays apparently harmless Candida species especially rare ones, cause a rising number of infections. We report the first case of conjunctivitis due to Candida metapsilosis obtained from the eye discharge of 40-day-old girl with congenital heart disease admitted in the ICU. The isolate was resistant to fluconazole, anidulafungin and micafungin.
