By C. W. Yang, T. M. S. Barkham, F. Y. Chan and Y. Wang

Abstract

We present data on the prevalence of Candida species isolated from inpatients in three Singapore hospitals and from vaginal samples collected at community clinics. Strikingly, ∼20% of the isolates from blood and vaginal samples were fluconazole-resistant species. By analyzing species-specific gene sequence signatures, we identified Candida dubliniensis from both groups of patients
