Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is an infection caused by abnormal yeast growth in the mucosa of the female genital tract which is commonly diagnosed in gynecology. The aim of this study was to correlate the frequency of yeasts and their respective species in asymptomatic women with different clinical manifestation of VVC; evaluate possible relationships between number of fungus colonies and symptoms in this pathology. All patients who visited the laboratory within a period of five months, for… Expand
Isolation of Different Species of Candida in Patients With Vulvovaginal Candidiasis From Sari, Iran
TLDR
The results of this study showed that non-albicans species of Candida are more frequent than C. albicans in patients with VVC, which is in line with some recent studies indicating that non -albican species ofcandida must be considered in gynecology clinics due to the reported azole resistance in these species.

TLDR
VVC can only be diagnosed by using clinical criteria in correlation with vulvovaginal symptoms and Candida cultures, according to a prospective study carrying out laboratory diagnosis and direct microscopic and biochemical examination of vaginal discharge/secretions. Expand
Non-Albicans Candida among Symptomatic Vulvovaginal Candidiasis Women in Onitsha , Nigeria
Background: Non-albicans Candida (NAC) species have emerged as important causes of Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) among women of reproductive age. The aim of this study was to establish anExpand
Prevalence of Vulvovaginal Candidiasis and Frequency of Candida Species in Women
TLDR
The results revealed that Candida albicans was the most commonly identified species of pathogenic yeasts related to vulvovaginal candidiasis, and identification and consideration of potential etiological agents involved in RVVC is recommended. Expand
DETERMINATION OF PREVALANCY AND SPECIES OF VULVOVAGINAL CANDIDIASIS AND CLINICAL FINDINGS CORROLATION
TLDR
The most common isolated species was candida albicans and the common clinical findings were burning, itching, smelly discharge, vaginal parity. Expand
Genetic relatedness among vaginal and anal isolates of Candida albicans from women with vulvovaginal candidiasis in north-east Brazil.
TLDR
The hypothesis that there are 'substrains' of the C. albicans vaginal clone successfully established, which dominate in an apparently random manner over the course of time is corroborated. Expand
The epidemiology of Candida species associated with vulvovaginal candidiasis in an Iranian patient population.
TLDR
CHROMagar method is suggested as a convenient and cost effective yet reliable method to isolate the species of Candida especially in cases where more than one species is present. Expand
Vulvovaginal candidiasis in Mato Grosso, Brazil: pregnancy status, causative species and drugs tests
TLDR
Use of empiric antifungal therapy in Brazil due to syndromic management of vulvovaginitis could act as risk factor for increase resistance among VVC causative agents. Expand
A prospective observational study of vulvovagintis in pregnant women in Argentina, with special reference to candidiasis
TLDR
Yeast, bacteria or protozoa were most prevalent in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy coincident with a major prevalence of microorganisms and their relationships with vulvovaginitis (VV) and cervicitis. Expand
Vulvovaginal candidiasis is associated with the production of germ tubes by Candida albicans
TLDR
Results suggest that colonization by yeast in the vagina and lack of symptoms may be partially explained by the yeast’s sparse capacity to form germ tubes, and DDS high frequency for nystatin and ketoconazole indicates that identification, and susceptibility of antifungals tests are important to management of VVC.
