The in vitro activities of fluconazole and voriconazole against 1,024 clinical isolates of Candida spp. were determined by the agar disk diffusion test using the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) M44-A guidelines.

The situation in Turin, Italy, is quite similar to that of the rest of Italy, reflecting the worldwide trend
