Abstract: Invasive fungal infections caused by uncommon fungi have increased in recent years. Candida pelliculosa fungemia is usually associated with predisposing factors, such as administration of broad-spectrum antimicrobials, use of intravenous catheters, use of parenteral nutrition, neutropenia, stay in intensive care units (ICU) and surgery of the gastrointestinal tract. Candida pelliculosa rarely causing fungemia in previously healthy immunocompetent child.
