Invasive Candidiasis Statistics

Invasive candidiasis is extremely rare in people without risk factors, but it is the fourth most common cause of hospital-acquired bloodstream infections in the U.S. In the general population, the incidence is 8 to 10 cases per 100,000 people. A higher incidence has been observed among Blacks/African-Americans and babies less than one month old. It is estimated that between 5% and 20% of newborns that weigh less than 1000 grams (2.2 pounds) at birth develop invasive candidiasis.
