Description

Ethanol locks have been used to treat catheter infections and to decrease the rate at which they occur. Catheter-related infections caused by Candida spp. are especially difficult to manage medically and usually require catheter removal. We report 3 consecutive patients whose catheter infections caused by Candida were successfully treated with a combination of ethanol lock therapy and systemic antifungals.
