A collection of 48 clinical Cryptococcus neoformans isolates from Croatia was investigated retrospectively using in vitro antifungal susceptibility testing and molecular biological techniques to determine mating type and serotype by PCR and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) genotyping. These isolates were obtained from 15 patients: ten were(More)
The paper identifies fungal species, looking at the incidence of fungal isolation and risk factors influencing the development of fungal infection and colonization of interdigital spaces of the feet in 509 diabetic outpatients. Using standard mycologic diagnostic methods, fungi were detected in toe webs of 122 (24%) diabetic patients. The finding of fungi(More)
In recent years, an evident rise in the frequency of candidaemia caused by non-albicans Candida species has been reported. In this paper we present three cases of clinically manifested candidaemia caused by Candida utilis in neonatal patients hospitalized in the same neonatal intensive care unit within a 6 month period. To the authors' knowledge, only two(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to establish whether the Candida (C.) albicans species isolates from samples of the patient digestive, respiratory and genitourinary systems differed in the ability of proteinase excretion. METHODS A total of 1009 isolates of the C. albicans species obtained from 1009 clinical specimens of the digestive, respiratory and(More)
The aim of the study was to biotype 59 isolates of Candida (C.) albicans from cardiovascular system samples (blood and intravenous catheter) and 123 isolates of the same species from skin surveillance cultures (swabs of the armpit, groins and intravenous catheter insertion sites) of hospitalized patients using the Odds and Abbott biotyping method. Biotyping(More)
