AbstractA 38-year-old woman with acute myeloid leukaemia developed focal hepatic candidiasis. Ultrasonography and computerised tomography revealed the hepatic lesion and definite diagnosis was established by percutaneous liver biopsy. The use of a cumulative dose of 6.6 g of amphotericin B in combination with 5-fluorocytosine resulted in successful eradication of the fungus. The difficulties in making an antemortem diagnosis are well recognised and optimal therapy of the condition remains to be defined.
