Two cases with candidemia were presented in this report. First case had trauma, second case had diabetes mellitus (DM) + chronic renal failure (KBY). Patients were not neutropenic. Fungemia resulted from the infection with Candida spp rather than C. albicans in both patients. Patients could not respond to fluconazole and liposomal amphotericin-B (LAMPH-B) was administered. First case recovered whereas second case died. [Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center 1997;4(1):103-106]
