    Abstract

    Two patients with urinary candidiasis were treated with 5-fluorocytosine. Serum levels of the drug and a study of its excretion in urine are recorded together with a brief account of its activity in body fluids. Evidence of toxicity was not observed with dosages of from 2 to 5 g a day.
