Abstract In order to estimate the extent of neonatal candidiasis in Greece and to identify trends in clinical management, the present study was conducted using a questionnaire directed to Greek neonatologists and pediatric infectious disease specialists. The respondents represented 15 hospitals in the country's seven largest cities, which are currently the only Greek cities with neonatal intensive care units. Based on the responses, the incidence of neonatal candidiasis was determined to be 1.87 and 1.94 cases per unit-year for the years 2001 and 2002, respectively. Although a shift toward the isolation of non-Candida albicans isolates was noted, C. albicans was still the predominant pathogenic species. Deoxycholate amphotericin B remains the most frequently used antifungal agent in neonatal units nationwide.
