Nineteen patients 1 month to <2 years of age with (n = 16) or at high risk of (n = 3) invasive candidiasis received anidulafungin for 5-35 days (3 mg/kg day 1, 1.5 mg/kg daily thereafter) followed by optional fluconazole (NCT00761267). Most treatment-emergent adverse events were mild/moderate, and no treatment-related deaths occurred. End of intravenous therapy global response success rate was 68.8%.
