Review Articles

Infection secondary to Hansenula anomala is a rare occurrence, with few reports coming out of the United States. In this study, we report a case of Hansenula anomala fungemia in a patient with non-small cell lung cancer, who was successfully treated with an echinocandin, and review the literature regarding this pathogen.
