resistance to fluconazole: molecular mechanisms and in vivo impact in infected Galleria mellonella larvae.
To confirm that the previous methods did not fail to detect species of the complex Candida parapsilosis
and Candida glabrata, a PCR and sequencing analysis of the ITS 1-4 region was performed, determining no presence of cryptic species.
(7,8,12,13) In developed countries, Candida albicans is the most frequently isolated fungus in corneal infections; however, the prevalence of Candida parapsilosis

, and Candida glabrata isolates by simultaneous time-kill and postantifungal-effect experiments," Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, vol.
Control strains were as follows: Candida albicans ATCC 90028, Candida tropicalis ATCC 750, Candida parapsilosis
ATCC 22019, Candida glabrata ATCC 64677, Issatchenkia orientalis (Candida krusei) ATCC 6258, Candida lusitaniae ATCC 34449, Candida guilliermondii ATCC 6260, Candida dubliniensis GM0314.
In a recent study where fungal exit-site infections of PD patients were evaluated, the most frequently isolated species were Candida parapsilosis
(67%), followed by Candida glabrata (10%), Candida famata (7%), and Candida zeylanoides (7%) .
albicans (n = 14, 30%), followed by Candida tropicalis (n = 10, 21%), Candida glabrata (n = 9, 19%), Candida lusitaniae (n = 9, 19%), and Candida parapsilosis
(n = 5, 11%) as depicted in Table 2.

albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei, Candida tropicalis, and Candida parapsilosis
The majority of the life threatening infections are caused by well known opportunistic pathogens, like Candida albicans and Aspergillis fungus, while less common species include Candida glabrata, Candida krusei, Candida parapsilosis
and Candida tropicalis4-7.
The products were tested and found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis
and Acremonium fungi.
Of these cases, 25% are attributed to Candida albicans, other Candida species account for 25%, and Aspergillus species and other fungi account for the remainder.11-31 Predisposing factors for Candida parapsilosis
endocarditis include prosthetic valves, intravenous (IV) drug use, parenteral nutrition, abdominal surgery, immunosuppression, treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics and pre-existing valvular disease.141 Mortality for Candida endocarditis is high (67%), with a lower mortality in younger patients with a history of IV drug use.
