Caspofungin Etest Susceptibility Testing of Candida Species: Risk of Misclassification of Susceptible Isolates of C. glabrata and C. krusei when Adopting the Revised CLSI Caspofungin Breakpoints
Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 06/15/2012
Arendrup MC et al. – A total of 65/496 susceptible isolates (13.1%) were misclassified as intermediate (I) or resistant (R). Such misclassifications were most commonly observed for Candida krusei (73.1%) and Candida glabrata (33.1%). The revised breakpoints cannot be safely adopted for these two species.
