This is a case report of the first two cases of Candida auris in Denmark. Patient 1 was known to be colonized with C. auris when transferred from a foreign hospital to a Danish hospital. The patient was isolated during the entire hospitalization and the room was thoroughly cleaned after discharge. Patient 2 who had no travel history spent five hours in the room of Patient 1 after disinfection. One month later, C. auris was found in the blood of Patient 2. Transmission from Patient 1 to Patient 2 must be suspected.
