Abstract

In the United States, from January 1, 2000, through December 31, 2005, the incidence of candidemia-related hospitalization per 100,000 population rose by 52%, from 3.65 to 5.56 cases; and the incidence per 1,000 hospitalizations rose by 49%, from 0.28 to 0.42 cases. The proportion of all candidemia-related hospitalizations in which candidemia was the principal diagnosis remained stable at approximately 14%.
