Effects of fluconazole treatment of mice infected with fluconazole-susceptible and -resistant Candida tropicalis on fungal cell surface hydrophobicity, adhesion and biofilm formation.


BACKGROUND The incidence of Candida tropicalis less susceptible to fluconazole (FLC) has been reported in many parts of the world.
