Abstract

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.
