    Abstract

    Candidemia in the pediatric burn population poses a management dilemma due to the paucity of good clinical data to guide treatment decisions. Whilst candidemia is less common than bacteremia in pediatric burns patients, it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report a case of candidemia in an infant with 40% burns with ophthalmic complications secondary to nappy rash. We review the investigation and management of ocular candidemia.
