Hepatosplenic candidiasis (HSC) is a disseminated invasive fungal infection that develops commonly in patients with acute leukemia. The main symptom of HSC is a persistent fever in patients who have recovered from prolonged neutropenia subsequent to recent chemotherapy. Herein, a case is presented of a 32-year-old man who was followed up at hematology ward due to acute myeloid leukemia and febrile neutropenia related to cytarabine (ara-C) and daunorubicin chemotherapy. HSC was diagnosed and confirmed by ultrasonography, the culture of blood, and biopsy specimen.
