Abstract

We compared length of stay, inpatient costs, and mortality associated with Candida albicans and non-albicans bloodstream infections in adults and children. Compared with adults, children with Candida bloodstream infections had longer lengths of stay (36.7 vs. 20.7 days; P < 0.001) and higher inpatient costs ($133,871 vs. $56,725; P < 0.001) but lower mortality (28.3% vs. 43.5%; P < 0.001).
