Abstract

Two patients with acute leukemia in remission experienced hepatic candidal infection initially seen as chronic respiratory alkalosis, abnormalities of liver function, and abdominal pain. The occurrence of these signs and symptoms in patients with leukemia should warrant a presumptive diagnosis of visceral candidal infection and the consideration of empiric antifungal therapy while awaiting culture and biopsy results.
