Abstract

We report an unusual case of Candida glabrata meningitis and endocarditis in a young Caucasian womanwith a prosthetic aortic valve and suffering from a dissecting thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm. C.glabrata was isolated from culture of the cerebrospinal fluid. Candida infection of the central nervoussystem is an uncommon manifestation of disseminated infection due to Candida species. Our case reportalso highlights the intrinsic resistance of C. glabrata to azoles.
