Abstract:

Fungal bloodstream infections (BSIs) are severe diseases that lengthen hospital stay, have elevated morbidity and mortality and increase medical care costs. Their incidence has recently increased, likely due to an increase in the number of susceptible hosts. Characterization of Candida isolated from blood from patient admitted in ICU. Objectives of this study are to speciate Candida isolated from the clinical sample and to do susceptibility testing of Candida isolates using VITEK 2. Settings: Department of Microbiology, medical college and hospital in Central India. Study period: 1 year (April 01, 2016 - March 31, 2017) Study design: Prospective, non-randomized, observational study on patients visiting the hospital. Non-albicans Candida were the most common cause of blood stream infection by yeast. Risk factor for yeast infection found in our study was head injury, burn, low birth weight, birth asphyxia, malignancy, congenital heart defect. Out of 27 yeast isolates Candida tropicalis were 8 (29.62%), Candida krusie 7 (25.92%), Candida albicans 5 (18.52%), Candida glabrata 3 (11.11%), Candida parapsilosis 2 (7.41%), Trichosporon asahii 1 (3.7%) and Candida kefyr 1 (3.7%).
