Nonfermentative yeasts, such as Cryptococcus spp., have emerged as fungal pathogens during the last few years. However, standard methods to measure their antifungal susceptibility (antifungal susceptibility testing [AST]) are not completely reliable due to the impaired growth of these yeasts in standard media. In this work, we have compared the growth kinetics and the antifungal susceptibilities of representative species of nonfermentative yeasts such as Cryptococcus neoformans, Cryptococcus… CONTINUE READING
