Candida duobushaemulonii, a yeast closely related to Candida auris, is thought to cause infections in rare cases and is often misidentified. In October 2016, the Panamanian Ministry of Health implemented laboratory surveillance for C. auris Suspected C. auris isolates were forwarded to the national reference laboratory for identification by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry and antifungal susceptibility testing. Between November 2016 and May 2017, 17… CONTINUE READING
