We evaluated 119 episodes of oropharyngeal candidiasis due to C. albicans to study the patterns of fluconazole susceptibility of the isolates and the characteristics of the patients and to confirm the correlation between fluconazole susceptibility of isolates and therapeutic outcome. Sixty-one isolates were considered susceptible to fluconazole (MICs, < or = 0.5 microg/mL), 33 were intermediate (MICs, 1.0-8.0 microg/mL), and 25 were resistant (MICs, > or = 16.0 microg/mL). Patients infected… CONTINUE READING
