Comparison of costs, length of stay, and mortality associated with Candida glabrata and Candida albicans bloodstream infections.
We compared costs, length of stay, and mortality between adults with Candida albicans and Candida glabrata bloodstream infections. Early evidence of C glabrata, as defined by a positive culture within 2 days of admission, was associated with higher costs ($56,026 vs $32,810; P = .04) and longer hospital stays (19.7 vs 14.5 days; P = .05) compared with early evidence of C albicans. Mortality was similar between the groups.
