Categorical data was expressed as a frequency along with percentage and continuous data values presented in mean ± SD and median and range. All of these examples point to the ubiquitous nature of Candida species and the need for stringent infection control practices on the NICU to decrease the acquisition of nosocomial infections [56,57].

A week before hospitalization, the patient had been discharged from another hospital, where he had been admitted because of pancreatitis and treated for Escherichia coli bacteremia and renal insufficiency.

The pattern obtained was in keeping with results obtained by Jabra-Rizk et al. Summary of the adherence ofC. Comparison of phenotypic methods for the identification of Candida dubliniensis. Candida albicans is widely recognized as being the most pathogenic yeast species and in the majority of epidemiological studies has been found to be the most common cause of superficial and systemic infections.

In recent years, Candida species other than C.

We also tested chlamydospores formation on cornmeal agar plates [6] by streaking inoculum and putting coverslips to create microaerophilic conditions. For instance, a strain of C. Candida albicans, however, has gone under limited sequencing, although difficult due to polymorphism. The risk factors for candidal vaginitis are poorly understood; however, other candidal infections are largely the result of host-related defects. Several lines of evidence suggest that primary DNA sequence may not be the only determinant of CEN identity in regional centromeres. 3% of genes exhibiting >80% identity, while 98% of genes are syntenic, thus, confirming the very close phylogenetic relationship and the relatively recent divergence of the two species (estimated to have occurred approx. )Stock cultures of yeast isolates were kept on ceramic beads (Microbank; Mast Diagnostica, Reinfeld, Germany) at −70°C. Antifungal drug susceptibilities of oral Candida dubliniensis isolates from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected and non-HIV-infected subjects and generation of stable fluconazole-resistant derivates in vitro.

In conclusion, this study highlights a greater role of C. They were reexamined at the Fungus Reference Laboratory, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and reidentified as C. 1% (2 of 65) of C.

Disseminated infections result from translocation across the gastrointestinal tract epithelium of commensal Candida species [16,45,48]. Tobacco agar, a new medium for differentiating Candida dubliniensis from Candida albicans. However, centromeres in all eukaryotes studied to date assemble into specialized chromatin containing a histone H3 variant protein in the CENP-A/Cse4p family.

In the latter, stomach and kidney samples in infected animals contained only C. In the laboratory further tests were performed for identification.

The identification of virulence-associated factors in Candida species is complicated by the fact that they are opportunistic pathogens that usually exist in harmony with the human host as part of the commensal flora and only cause infection when host deficiencies permit. Arendrup MC, et al. Susceptibility testing by E-test Antifungal susceptibility by E-test was performed on RPMI 1640 agar medium supplemented with 2% glucose with pH adjusted to 7.
