Epidemiology of oropharyngeal colonization and infection due to non-Candida albicans species in HIV-infected patients






Medicina Clinica Barcelona 112(6): 211-214

Epidemiology of oropharyngeal colonization and infection due to non-Candida albicans species in HIV-infected patients

The epidemiology of colonization and infections due to non-C. albicans species (NCAS) in HIV-infected patients in different stages, who attended 2 hospitals in Alicante, Spain, during July 1996-January 1997 was studied. The prevalence and microbiology of oropharyngeal colonization and infection due to Candida spp., and fluconazole susceptibility patterns were assessed.

A time-cohort analysis was carried out, comparing the frequency of oropharyngeal colonization and infection by C. albicans in 70 patients from Spain in 1992 and 2000. The percentage of patients with C. albicans isolates was similar in 1992 and 200...

Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) remains a common opportunistic infection in HIV-infected patients. Candida albicans is the most frequent causative agent of OPC. However, non-albicans spp. are being increasingly isolated. Candidal cell wall protein...

Twenty-one Candida albicans isolates from three HIV-infected patients were collected over a period of 3 years and characterized for fluconazole susceptibility, infectivity and genetic relatedness. Fluconazole resistance was found in five isolates,...
