The growth-inhibitory effect of itraconazole against 85 strains of mycotic agents belonging to 37 species was studied. MIC values were determined in a microtiter broth dilution method using casitone medium. The widest range of susceptibility was noted for yeasts. More strains of Candida albicans, Candida, spp. and Torulopsis spp. were found to be highly sensitive (MIC = 0.22 mg l-1), a single strain of Candida tropicalis and Rhodotorula glutinis was fully resistant (MIC = 200 mg l-1).
