Outbreak of candidemia caused by fluconazole resistant Candida parapsilosis
strains in an intensive care unit.
Multidrug transporters and alterations in sterol biosynthesis contribute to azole antifungal resistance in Candida parapsilosis
. Antimicrob Agents Chemother.
In this report, although the presence of cryptic species of Candida parapsilosis
and Candida glabrata were not observed, it is important to use methodologies that are able to detect them, mainly due to the emergence of species that are difficult to manage (9,37,38).

ATCC 22019 and Issatchenkia orientalis (Candida krusei) ATCC 6258 were evaluated.
These 2 episodes occurred with a time difference of more than 5 months and were caused by Candida parapsilosis

es un hongo levaduriforme, ubicuo, comensal del tejido epitelial y mucosas del humano, que no habia sido considerado como un patogeno importante, hasta que se aislo de infecciones severas en pacientes inmunocomprometidos y drogadictos (1).
albicans were D1, D2, D4, D7, D18, and D20 and non-albicans species include ATCC 90030 (Candida glabrata), D9 (Candida tropicalis), D11 (Candida parapsilosis
), and D46 (Candida krusei).
If we put a more broad look at geographical distribution of the pathogens, Candida glabrata isolates are more common in North America (23.5%), Candida albicans isolates are more common in Asia Pacific region (56.9%), with Candida parapsilosis
(25.6%) and Candida tropicalis (17.0%) being more prominent in Latin American region15.
