In 1968, Buckley and van Uden described the nonfermenting yeast Candida blankii (C. blankii) found in the organs of a mink. Until recently, this microorganism had only been the subject of biotechnological research. However, in 2015, Zaragoza et al. reported a 14-year-old male patient with cystic fibrosis (CF), who had pulmonary exacerbations with repeated isolation of C. blankii from respiratory samples. This finding raised the hypothesis that this yeast could be a relevant pathogen for CF… CONTINUE READING
