A 21 yo male Sickle came with fever, tenderness, and limited localized erythema over the port site. He seemed to respond to iv Vanco+Genta after 24 hrs. Peripheral BC grew fungus,id pending. Culture from the port is pending. ID specialist demands removal of Port-A-Cath. I ran to the library and looked up a recent review of Central Venous Access in one of the Current Problems in Surgery which seemed to support the removal in fungemia complicated catheter. Any comments,suggestions.
