    A proportional increase in candidemia due to non-albicans Candida species has been reported worldwide. In our hospital, 36 of 58 candidemia cases were caused by non-albicans Candida species between 1996 and 2007. Candidemia due to non-albicans Candida species is associated with fluconazole...

    Opportunistic infections are an increasingly common problem in hospitals, and the yeast Candida parapsilosis has emerged as an important nosocomial pathogen. The aims of this study were to determine and compare (i) the prevalence rate among C. parapsilosis complex organisms isolated from blood...

    Candida auris is a dificult-to-identify, emerging yeast and a cause of sustained nosocomial outbreaks. Presently, not much data exist on laboratory preparedness in Europe. To assess the ability of laboratories in Belgium and Luxembourg to detect this species, a blinded C. auris strain was...

    Background Definitive antifungal therapy is typically based on Candida species and clinical status, rather than susceptibility reports. Antifungal susceptibility testing is available, but the impact on treatment decisions is unknown. The purpose of this study was to assess antifungal therapy in...

    Candiduria is commonly encountered in hospitalized patients, particularly those with indwelling urinary catheters. While risk factors and therapy are well described in previous studies, little is known about long-term outcomes and recurrence rates of candiduria. We studied 188 patients with...
