is a recently described species that shares many features with Candida albicans
. There are very few reports of isolation of this species from bloodstream in adults and paediatric population. Here we report a case of neonatal septicaemia produced by C. dubliniensis
in a premature infant admitted to neonatal intensive care unit. The preterm male neonate with a gestational age of 30 weeks and a birth weight of 1.2 kg presented with respiratory distress syndrome for which mechanical ventilation was provided. In spite of receiving antibiotics, the patient developed fever. C.dubliniensis
was repeatedly isolated from the blood culture of the patient collected aseptically from different sites. The patient was successfully treated with amphotericin B.
