Risk factors for fluconazole resistance in patients with Candida glabrata bloodstream infection: potential impact of control group selection on characterizing the association between previous fluconazole use and fluconazole resistance.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Although Candida glabrata is an emerging infection, risk factors for fluconazole resistance in patients with C glabrata bloodstram infection (BSI) have not been well elucidated. METHODS A case-control study was conducted to evaluate the primary risk factor of interest, previous fluconazole use, adjusting for demographics, comorbidities, time at… (More)
