In developing countries like India increase in infection with multidrug resistant bacteria due to inappropriate use of broad-spectrum antimicrobials leads to overgrowth of candida species thus enhancing the opportunity to cause the disease. This makes major health impact due to its severity, increased hospital stay, increased morbidity and mortality. In this study, out of 76 candida isolates, 41% were C.albicans and 59% were non albicans group. This shows high prevalence of non albicans group. Resistance to antifungal agents is also higher in Non-albicans compared to C.albicans.

Keywords: Candidial infection, Candidemia, microbial flora
