ABSTRACT

A 65-year-old man who was a passenger on the Diamond Princess cruise ship was admitted to our hospital for coronavirus infectious disease 2019 (COVID-19). He became severely ill and was placed on mechanical ventilation support. Subsequently, his condition improved temporarily with multidisciplinary treatment, including steroid pulse therapy. However, it was complicated by candidemia due to Candida lusitaniae and ventilator-associated pneumonia, which made the treatment difficult. Fortunately, he was discharged with prescriptions for antifungal and antibacterial drugs, systemic management, and rehabilitation. At our hospital, which does not have an intensive care unit, various measures were taken to manage severe COVID-19 patients.
