Abstract:

Candida spp. can cause a wide variety of infections in immunosuppressed patients of long term broad – spectrum antibiotics, steroids or other immunosuppressive agents, diabetes mellitus, AIDS, Malignancy, Neutropenia. Although the majority of infections are caused by Candida albicans, Non-C. albicans Candida (NCAC) species are emerging as important pathogen in humans. Our study included 130 clinical isolates which showed gram positive budding yeasts cells with or without pseudohyphae. KOH mount, germ tube, Carbohydrate assimilation test and fermentation test and antifungal susceptibility by disc diffusion method was done.65% of the total isolates were sensitive to Fluconazole and 82% of the total isolates were sensitive to Voriconazole


Keywords: Candida albicans, Voriconazole, population
