Evolution and replacement of Candida albicans strains during recurrent vaginitis demonstrated by DNA fingerprinting.

Abstract

Southern blot hybridization with the Ca3 probe and the C fragment of the Ca3 probe was used to assess the genetic relatedness of Candida albicans strains from one patient with recurrent C. albicans infection in whom the same strain was maintained, one patient in whom the infecting strain was replaced, and their male sexual partners. In the patient in whom… (More)
