Abstract

We analyzed the caspofungin safety experience in 5 clinical registration studies in 171 pediatric patients, 1 week to 17 years of age. Caspofungin was administered for 1 to 87 (mean 12.1) days. The most common drug-related adverse events were fever, increased AST, increased ALT, and rash; few events were serious or required treatment discontinuation. Caspofungin was well tolerated in this pediatric population.
