Abstract

Little is known about the side effects of micafungin in extremely low birth weight infants. In a retrospective single-center study, 19 extremely low birth weight infants were analyzed for micafungin efficacy and safety. At a mean±standard deviation daily dosage of 7.5 ± 2.0 mg/kg, no clinically relevant side effects were observed. A significant increase of liver enzymes was reversible after treatment.
