Abstract:

A total of 100 isolates of candida species were recovered from various clinical samples. C. albicans was the most common isolated species (42%) followed by C. krusei (17%) C. tropicalis (15%) C. parapsilosis (13%) C. famata (8%) C. glabrata (4%) and Cryptococcus species (1%). Non albicans Candida were isolated at a higher rate (58%) than C. albicans. Most of the Candida isolate were susceptible to Amphotericin (81%) followed by Nystastin (79%) and Miconazole (58%). Fluconazole was least effective with 79% resistant. So goal of the study was to show there is an increase in the incidence of No nalbicans Candida with antifungal resistant strain of Candida species underlines the need of early and accurate diagnosis of infecting Candida species along with antifungal susceptibility testing for selecting the most appropriate antifungal agent for therapy.
