This study describes the safety and efficacy of amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC) in 11 neonates with systemic Candida infections. Nine of the 11 improved clinically, and eight of nine evaluable patients had a mycological cure with ABLC. Creatinine levels improved or did not significantly change in eight of the 11 patients.
