Introduction: Candida species occurs as commensal organisms but in immunocompromised patients and those on long term antibiotics, these unrecognized opportunistic fungi may become fatal. Although C. albicans is the most frequently isolated pathogen, the incidence of infections due to non-albicans Candida are on the increase especially with fluconazole resistant strains. Identification of Candida to species level therefore becomes important for selecting the appropriate antifungal agents. The… CONTINUE READING
