Abstract

Esophageal perforation due to Candida glabrata is a rare entity. This organism is uncommonly recognized to be angio-invasive and cause gastrointestinal tract perforation. Herein, we describe a case of invasive C. glabrata infection leading to esophageal perforation in a patient undergoing hemopoietic stem cell transplantation.
