Antifungal drug susceptibility profile of Pichia anomala isolates from patients presenting with nosocomial fungemia



Antifungal drug susceptibility profile of Pichia anomala isolates from patients presenting with nosocomial fungemia



Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 51(4): 1573-1576



In vitro susceptibility of 58 isolates of Pichia anomala to five antifungal drugs using two broth microdilution methods (CLSI and EUCAST) was analyzed. Low susceptibility to itraconazole was observed. Fluconazole, voriconazole, amphotericin B, and caspofungin showed good antifungal activity, although relatively high drug concentrations were necessary to inhibit the isolates.
