Abstract

CANDIDA AURIS- AN EMERGING THREAT IN ICU

Dr. Nilakshi Borah (M.D)* and Dr. Ajanta Sharma (M.D&PhD)

ABSTRACT

Candida auris is an emerging multidrug resistant fungus that has caused outbreaks of invasive infections in healthcare facilities. Infections can occur in patients of all ages, but most infections have been reported in adults. Isolates were identified by Vitek 2 and also by conventional method. AST was done by both broth microdilution and disk diffusion methods. Of the 100 isolates, Candida auris was isolated in 12 cases. Fluconazole was resistant in 11(91.67%) isolates but all the isolates were found sensitive to Voriconazole (100%) by both the methods. Appropriate infection control measures should be instituted to contain this emerging threat.
