摘要

Infections due to Prototheca spp. are ubiquitous in nature, occurring in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. The study cohort consisted of 14 cases of Prototheca algaemia reported over the past 5 decades and 2 recent cases from study hospitals. Prototheca wickerhamii was the most common species. The overall mortality rate was 62.5%. Prototheca algaemia, a healthcare-associated infection, was observed in immunocompromised patients and was associated with a poor prognosis.
