Abstract:

Candida albicans (C.albicans) is considered as the commonest cause of Candidiasis. But recently incidence of non – albicans Candida(NAC) infection has increased. The most commonly used drugs against candidiasis are azole derivatives. Resistance pattern of different Candida species (spp) varies widely, some of them being inherently resistant. This study was undertaken to find out incidence of Candidiasis, their species identification and susceptibility of azole derivatives. In 6 months period, total 43 Candida spp. were isolated from various clinical samples, among which C. albicans (46.5%), C. tropicalis (24.5%), C. glabrata (23.4%) and C. krusie (4.6%).Susceptibility to Ketoconazole (KT), Fluconazole (FLC) and Itraconazole (IT) were detected.
