ABSTRACT: The present study was undertaken to estimate the incidence and further the influence of fungal infections in critically ill surgical patients. Invasive fungal disease was found in 18 percent of the patients. C. albicans was the agent most frequently isolated. Acute physiological scoring (APS) was found to be a significant factor predicting invasive fungal disease. Age, leucocytosis and duration of hospital stay were not found to have any association with development of invasive disease. Mortality rate was significantly higher in patients with invasive disease.
