Candida dubliniensis is an emerging pathogen first described in 1995, which shares many phenotypic features with Candida albicans and therefore may be misidentified in microbial laboratories. Despite various phenotypic techniques described in the literature to differentiate the two species, the correct identification of C. dubliniensis remains problematic due to phenotypic similarities between these species. Thus, as the differences between both are best characterized at genetic levels, several… Expand
Methods of Candida dubliniensis identification and its occurrence in human clinical material
TLDR
The aims of this work were to determine the occurrence of C. dubliniensis in various clinical materials, to evaluate several ways to identify it and to examine the genetic variability of isolates. Expand
Candida dubliniensis: An Appraisal of Its Clinical Significance as a Bloodstream Pathogen
TLDR
A nine-year prospective study on the prevalence of Candida dubliniensis among Candida bloodstream isolates highlights a greater role of C. dublinienis in bloodstream infections than hitherto recognized. Expand
A Novel Selective Medium for Isolation of Candida dubliniensis
TLDR
New selective medium was suggested to be useful for the isolation of C. dubliniensis from oral cavity in clinical samples and grew well, but C. albicans did not grow on the medium. Expand
Candida africana and Candida dubliniensis as causes of pediatric candiduria: A study using HWP1 gene size polymorphism
TLDR
C. africana, either alone or mixed with C. albicans, could be a cause of candiduria among pediatric patients and should not be ignored. Expand
Candida africana: Is It a Fungal Pathogen?
TLDR
The current knowledge about C. africana is discussed, highlighting its role in human infections, thus providing a complete clinical picture in order to understand if this yeast can be considered an important pathogen. Expand
Hypertonic xylose agar medium: A novel medium for differentiation of Candida dubliniensis from Candida albicans
TLDR
HXAM is proposed as a sole phenotypic method for identifying C. dubliniensis from germ-tube-positive isolates or from stock collections of known C. albicans. Expand
Population structure and molecular genetic characterization of 5-flucytosine-susceptible and -resistant clinical Candida dubliniensis isolates from Kuwait
TLDR
Fingerprinting of C. dubliniensis isolates by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) was performed to determine population structure of 5-FC-resistant and -susceptible strains and compared the results with data from a global collection of isolates. Expand
Identification of candida species using HiChrome agar in HIV‑seropositive patients with oral candidiasis
TLDR
Identifying various Candida species using HiChrom agar in HIV‑seropositive patients in different clinical variants of oral candidiasis is important to target the specific drug for treatment. Expand
Factors influencing the presence of Candida dubliniensis and other non-albicans species in patients with oral lichen planus: a retrospective observational study.
TLDR
In OLP patients, certain local and systemic factors increase the risk of carrying potentially drug-resistant Candida species and the development of Candida superinfection of OLP lesions, especially in smokers and patients using removable dentures. Expand
Isolation and molecular characterization of Candida africana from Jos, Nigeria.
TLDR
Molecular analysis performed by amplification of the hwp1 gene showed that two atypical C. albicans isolates recovered in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria belonged to C. africana, a newly proposed Candida species closely related to C., which is the first isolation of C.Africana in Nigeria. Expand

TLDR
The increasing number of reports of the recovery of C. dubliniensis from normal and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients suggests that it may be a constituent of the normal oral flora. Expand
Rapid Identification of Candida dubliniensis with Commercial Yeast Identification Systems
TLDR
Although assimilation of MDG, TRE, and XYL proved to be the most useful for species differentiation by the majority of commercial systems, the results with these carbohydrates by the Wickerham and Burton procedure were essentially the same for both species, albeit following protracted incubation.

TLDR
The presence of C. dubliniensis in samples in a culture collection, which had been isolated from HIV-positive and HIV-negative patients with oral erythematous candidiasis, underscores the presence of this emerging oral pathogen, whose geographical and epidemiological distribution should be more fully investigated.

TLDR
The close association of C. dubliniensis with immunocompromised states and that increased fluconazole MICs may develop in vivo are confirmed and emphasized the importance of screening germ-tube-positive yeasts for the inability to grow at 45°C followed by confirmatory tests in order to properly identify this species.

TLDR
Six identification methods based on significant phenotypic characteristics each proposed as reliable tests applicable in mycology laboratories for the differentiation of the two species were performed together to assess the clinical strains that were initially identified as C. albicans. Expand
Evaluation of a Rapid Immunochromatographic Assay for Identification of Candida albicans and Candida dubliniensis
TLDR
A new test based on the principle of immunochromatographic analysis that involves the use of two distinct monoclonal antibodies that recognize two unrelated epitopes expressed by both species or specific to only one species is recommended for routine use in clinical microbiology laboratories.
