CCSAP Book 1 • Infection Critical Care 3 Fungal Infections in the ICU their low positive predictive values, impracticality, and ten-dency to promote overuse of antifungal agents. There is a strong correlation between Candida colonization and infection. Rates of colonization increase with longer ICU stays and exposure to risk Size: KB.   The practice guidelines for the treatment of fungal diseases have been developed with exactly that in mind. That is, we have provided a realistic practice guideline that takes into consideration a myriad of local circumstances under which clinicians make life-sustaining critical therapeutic by:

The incidence of invasive fungal infections (IFIs) has been following an upward trend over time, due to a continuous increase in the number of patients at risk, while the prognosis remains poor. These additions have improved both the Cited by: 2.   Abstract. In general, mortality rates associated with systemic fungal infections have not improved much in more than a decade, although the number of antifungal agents available for the treatment of serious fungal infections has increased in the past few by:   Itraconazole is used for the treatment of oral and oesophageal candidosis, prevention of fungal infections in patients with profound and prolonged neutropenia, and treatment of invasive aspergillosis and cryptococcosis in patients who are refractory or intolerant to other first-line antifungal agents. 15 In addition, itraconazole is used for the treatment of allergic aspergillosis, dermatophyte infections, sporotrichosis, blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis and infections Cited by:

A systemic fungal infection in pediatrics is not a common occurrence. Nevertheless, in recent decades, the incidence of invasive fungal infections and the need to recognize and appropriately manage them in pediatrics have increased. More than , species of fungi have been identified, of which only a few are known to be pathogenic. Antifungal therapy – can be divided into an initial phase, when characteristic yeasts are first identified, and definitive therapy, based on speciation and susceptibility. Concomitant with the increase in the incidence of systemic candidiasis has been an increase in the proportion of infections caused by non- albicans species, particularly in patients previously exposed to azole by: Fungal infections can range in severity from superficial to life-threatening. For example, fungal infections affecting only the top layers of the skin are readily treatable and have a relatively limited impact on quality of life. However, if a fungal infection enters systemic circulation, consequences can be deadly (Badiee ; Zuber ). Amphotericin B deoxycholate is the preferred formulation for treatment of neonates with systemic candidiasis because of better penetration into the central nervous system, urinary tract, and eye, which often are involved in neonatal Candida infections; lipid-associated formulations do not penetrate as well into these body sites. Amphotericin B deoxycholate is .
