By A. B. S. Mitchell, G. Hosking, I. T. Magrath and C. P. Farthing

Abstract

Candida albicans septicaemia occurred in an alcoholic woman who had severe hepatic dysfunction, and was further debilitated by multiple cardiac arrests, prolonged artificial ventilation, bronchopneumonia and Ps. aeruginosa septicaemia. She received broad spectrum antibiotics and corticosteroids, and needed prolonged intravenous cannulation. In vitro, a specific defect was demonstrated in her cell-mediated immune response to candida antigens. Examination of her serum showed normal immunoglobulins, and an adequate agglutination titre to these antigens
