Abstract: The description of the association between the use of amphotericin-B (amB) and the development of systemic arterial hypertension was only anecdotal so far. We describe the case of a 19-year-old female patient who had acute lymphoblastic leukemia and developed prolonged neutropenia after reinduction chemotherapy. Candida parapsilosis was isolated from blood cultures, and amB was started. Sustained severe arterial hypertension developed shortly after amB administration and continued for several hours after the infusion. Aldosterone, blood urea nitrogen, and creatinine levels were normal. After clinical improvement, amB was replaced by fluconazole, and. blood pressure normalized. Severe hypertension may be an adverse event associated with AmB treatment that requires intensive treatment.
