15 patients who suffered from severe and prolonged external Candida ocular infections and who had not responded to Mycostatin and/or Amphotericin B treatment, were successfully treated with 5-Fluorocytosine administered topically or combined topical-orally. In all patients, a cure was achieved after a treatment period of approximately 6 months. No side effects were observed and no resistance to the drug developed.
