Mediastinitis is a life-threatening condition generally associated with bacterial infections. Candida mediastinitis is a rare clinical entity. We report a case of a three year old male child who developed candida mediastinitis as a complication of esophageal perforation following cricopharyngoscopy. Although the polymicrobial infective agents causing mediastinitis in the present case were Klebsiella, Candida dubliniensis and C.glabrata, the patient succumbed to candidemia due to C.glabrata in spite of treatment with fluconazole.
