Abstract

Biliary candidiasis is increasing in the hospitalized immunosuppressed individuals. Placement of biliary stents in the cancer patients with obstructive jaundice has been found to be an important factor associated with infectious complications. Positive fungal cultures from bile should not be ignored as mere contamination but should be considered when prescribing treatment for the immunosuppressed with recurrent cholangitis or receiving long-term antibiotic therapy. Here,we report a case of cholangiocarcinoma with cholangitis where Candida tropicalis was the sole pathogen isolated from bile. This is probably the first case of its kind to be reported from Manipal, Karnataka, South India.
