The majority of the life threatening infections are caused by well known opportunistic pathogens, like Candida albicans and Aspergillis fungus, while less common species include Candida glabrata
, Candida krusei, Candida parapsilosis and Candida tropicalis4-7.

dominated among the fungi identified in the collected samples; however, C albicans and C krusei were also common.
Moreover, 3(5.4%) of Candida glabrata
isolates and 2(3.6%) of Candida tropicalis isolates were found to be resistant.
We searched Medline, PubMed, and Google Scholar for case reports and case series in the English literature that were published till December 2016, using the terms "chorioamnionitis," "intra-amniotic infection," "Candida species," "Candida albicans," "Candida glabrata
," "Torulopsis glabrata," and "congenital candidiasis".
, Candida tropicalis and Cryptococcus neoformans occurred less frequently than the above pathogen in CTD patients (Table 2).
Anidulafungin and micafungin MIC breakpoints are superior to that of caspofungin for identifying FKS mutant Candida glabrata
strains and echinocandin resistance.
