Yeast (fungal) infections in the blood are very uncommon, and typically occur in patients who are already seriously ill from other causes. In many cases, it is these other serious illnesses that are more likely to determine whether patients with fungal infections in the blood will survive or not.

Since I cannot examine your son, or his medical records, I really cannot answer your questions in any more detail than this.

I do hope that your son will make a full recovery.
