Time to positive culture results in neonatal Candida septicemia

Academic Article

Abstract

  • To determine the time required for blood cultures to be detected as positive in neonates with invasive Candida infection, we analyzed 207 positive culture episodes in 74 infants. Time to positive result was 37 ± 14 hours, and 97% of infected neonates were detected by 72 hours if not exposed to antifungal therapy.
