In this study the molecular identification and susceptibility profile of 21 clinical isolates, from a Brazilian hospital, belongs to six different species of Trichosporon were described. Trichosporon asahii was the predominant species and corresponded to 43% of isolates. Eighty three percent of the strains isolated from deep sites were identified as T. asahii, while only 17% belong to a non-T. asahii species (Trichosporon inkin). In general, the MICs were high and independent of the species of… CONTINUE READING
