PATHOGENS

  • Candida albicans
    • This is the dominant organism in oral candidiasis (~80% of colonizing isolates).
      • C. albicans may cause infection alone or in combination with non-C. albicans species
    • Typically susceptible to azole antifungals, but resistance can develop.
  • Non-albicans Candida spp
    • Most common non-C. albicans organisms: C. glabrata,C. tropicalis, C. dubliniensis and C. krusei.
    • C. glabrata especially can cause fluconazole refractory infections, some of which can prove resistant to other azoles as well.
