A 75-year-old female presenting with abdominal pain and hypotension.

Patient History

Hypertension, hyperlipidemia, type 2 Diabetes mellites, ovarian cancer with metastases, placement of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube, and total parental nutrition (TPN) dependent. 

The patient was recently discharged after a prolonged hospital stay (3 weeks) and underwent several GI surgeries, most recently a bowel resection for duodenal perforation as a result of tumor erosion.

Surgical oncology, Gastroenterology, and Infectious Diseases services were all consulted to manage the case.

Evaluation and Treatment Decision

The identification of Candida glabrata/krusei with the T2Candida Panel prevented the inappropriate de-escalation of antifungal therapy in a high-risk patient.
