Candida vulturna is a newly emerging candida species belong to Candida haemulonii species complex of Metschnikowiaceae family. Numerous clinical samples have been reported to isolate C. vulturna since discovery. We report a case of catheter related blood stream infection in which C. vulturna was isolated from blood in patient after prolong antibiotic therapy for recurrent infection of retroperitoneal cyst. The blood isolate was identified to species level by molecular assay targeting D1/D2 regions of 26s rDNA gene. The patient improved with administration of intravenous micafungin despite lack of antifungal susceptibility breakpoints. © 2022
