Abstract

Candidemia is possibly complicated with a biofilm formation, and the mortality rate of biofilm-associated candidemia is reported very high. Herein, we described candida biofilm-related thrombophlebitis, which was successfully treated with micafungin. This case suggested that biofilm targeted therapy may be warranted in the presence of thrombus formation.
