Patients with renal failure have a higher incidence of fungal infections than normal hosts. These infections remain a major cause of death among patients with acute renal failure (ARF). Such patients prompt and aggressive antifungal therapy with catheter removal is mandatory. There continues to be debate over the antifungal agent to be used, appropriate dosage, and optimal duration of treatment for Candidemia infection. Amphotericin B has been historically the drug of choice for candidemia. However, its use is limited by its toxicity. Liposomal amphotericin was developed. Commercially only two (Fungisome and Ambisome) true liposomal preparations of amphotericin B are available. Both these preparations have been shown to be safe and effective in presence of acute renal failure.

Thank you doctor
