Only on the advice of an Intensive Care Physician or Medical Microbiologist for:
Treatment of invasive candidiasis in adults, elderly and children (including neonates). Use is restricted to intensive care units and the decision to use micafungin should take into account a potential risk for the development of liver tumours. Micafungin should therefore only be used if other antifungals are not appropriate.
Third-line echinocandin for adults and second-line for paediatric, non-neutropenic patients in intensive care units.
