Molecular identification and antifungal susceptibility of clinical isolates of Candida rugosa species complex and proposal of the new species Candida neorugosa

Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 05/03/2012

The closest species by D1/D2 sequences was the Type strain of C. rugosa with only 92.3% similarity. Candida neorugosa can also be differentiated from all other species of the C. rugosa complex by phenotypic features. The eight antifungal drugs tested showed high in vitro activity against the 24 isolates included in this study.
