Background: The present study was conducted to determine antimicotic susceptibility of Candida species (sp.) from patients with symptomatic candiduria.
Materials and Methods: Identification of Candida sp. and determination of efficacy of most routine antifungals were done using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method and E-test, respectively.
Results: The results from susceptibility test reveal that caspofungin and amphotericin B have high antifungal activity against both albicans (100% and 96%, respectively) and nonalbicans (95.11% and 72.72%, respectively) isolates.
Conclusion: The present study suggests that caspofungin and amphotericin B have the excellent ability to eradicate both Candida groups that showed decreased susceptibility to other compounds.
