Colonies suggestive of C.albicans were confirmed by this germ tube test.
It is an established fact that C.albicans can convert into a disease causing pathogen from a commensal, when there is a change in the host environment (13).
In our study there was a gradual decline in C.albicans isolates and a significant rise in the detection of non- albicans candida species, particularly C.tropicalis.
had also previously reported similar findings in their study with C.tropicalis being the cause of highest mortality in their patients.16 Similarly, haematological malignancies and neutropenia have also been associated with increased mortality.14,17 Of the 311 patients with candidaemia in this study, 73% received amphotericin B, while the rest of the patients received either fluconazole for c.albicans or died before the culture report was available for candida BSI.
In group I (cases), C.albicans was detected in 44% (8 out of 18), followed by C.glabrata in 28% (5 out of 18), and C.tropicalis in 17% of cases (3 out of 18).
There were statistically significant differences in biofilm formation phospholipase activity and in proteinase activity between C.albicans and C.non.albicans.

MIC ranges and MIC50/90 values of fluconazole against all isolates are summarized (Table-III) The MIC50/MIC90 values of fluconazole against C.albicans were much lower than C.glabrata (0.317/0.571 vs 1.516/2.728g/mL).
As shown in table no 3, infection due to non-albicans Candida was more common than C.albicans. C.tropicalis was most common isolate.

The most common isolate from all samples was C.albicans (79.33%) followed by C.tropicalis (19.33%) and C.guilliermondii (1.33%).
There are more than 200 spp, of which C.albicans is the most common, other commonly isolated species are C.glabrata, C.
