• Clusters of rare cases of fungemia should immediately trigger research.
• Bloodstream infection by Candida guilliermondii has a high mortality.
• Hospitals should develop local policies to regulate informal in-hospital care.
We investigated an outbreak of Candida guilliermondii fungemia with a fatality rate of 54% that occurred during a 19-month period among patients hospitalized in a tertiary care hospital. The hiring of an external care attendant during hospitalization was epidemiologically linked to case patients (100% vs 3% of the controls, P < .001). Subsequent investigation of the outbreak and disclosure of the findings were associated with an end to the epidemic.
