The costs per successfully treated patient over a 12-week period were £28 956 (£1 = $US 1.60, June 1995) for oral fluconazole, £53 225 for liposomal amphotericin and £32 768 for oral polyenes. Sensitivity analysis showed that the costs of liposomal amphotericin always exceeded those of the oral comparators, reflecting its high acquisition, preparation and administration costs.
