Candida parapsilosis is an emerging opportunistic pathogen which causes systemic and superficial infections in immunocompromised hosts. Successful colonization and subsequent infection of the host by a microorganism depends upon its ability to adhere to host surfaces, and its relative cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) is a contributory physical force involved in the process. During a comprehensive study of a battery of C. parapsilosis isolates, we noted wide variations in their cell size. Hence… CONTINUE READING
