Candida: A Clinico-mycological Study
Keywords:Anti-fungal therapy, Candida spp., Debilitating diseases, Fungal infections.
Fungal infections caused by Candida spp. are a cause of morbidity and mortality, with Candida albicans being considered the prime suspect. Other species, Candida tropicalis, Candida pseudotropicalis, Candida parapsilosis, Candida krusei, Candida guilliermondii, and Candida vishwanathii are equally notorious and should be reported aggressively. The presence of fungal elements in clinical samples is sometimes low, making their detection challenging amidst the tissue elements and other bacterial presence. Therefore, mycological diagnostic methods need to be comprehensive with no less emphasis on any diagnostic step.
