was found to be the predominant species isolated in the current study followed by C.tropicalis.
Candidiasis is caused by infection with species of the genus Candida, predominantly with Candida albicans
. The growing problem of mucosal and systemic candidiasis reflects the enormous increase in the number of patients at risk and the increased opportunity that exists for Candida species to invade tissues normally resistant to invasion with the help of the Candida virulence markers such as adhesin, Germ tube, Pseudohyphae, slime production, exoenzymes etc.
Strains: Candida albicans
(ATCC 14053 and 64546) and Candida krusei (ATCC 6258) strains were used as a reference and eight different clinical isolates of Candida spp were evaluated in this study.
