Candida famata is an opportunistic pathogen. Very rare cases of candidemia Candida famata have been described.We report a case of a patient of 16 years undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease. The patient was put under voriconazole for 3 weeks with a good evolution. This case confirms the opportunistic pathogen Candida famata. All insulation in the blood must be considered before a background of immunosuppression.

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia with cold autoantibodies or cold agglutinin disease is a rare chronic disorder in which no treatment has, until now, evidence of its effectiveness.We report a patient who successfully responded to rituximab for a cold agglutinin disease refractory to conventional therapy with very good tolerance and a complete remission.There are only few observations that have been reported in the literature regarding the efficacity of rituximab in the treatment of cold agglutinin disease. This promising therapy could, in the future, constitute a real alternative.
