To determine the susceptibilities of fluconazole and voriconazole based on slime production by Candida
strains (115) isolated in the period between January 2011 and January 2012 were included in this study. Conventional methods were used for the identification. Candida albicans
and non-C. albicans
isolates were tested for slime production with modified tube adherence test and antifungal resistance with disk diffusion method.
Slime positivity was 31.3 % in all Candida
species. Slime positivity in non-C.albicans
isolates (44.89 %) was higher than in C. albicans
species (21.21 %). All C. albicans
isolates were sensitive to fluconazole and voriconazole. The highest resistance to fluconazole (40 %) and voriconazole (5%) was by C. glabrata
Species definition and determination of antifungal susceptibility patterns are advised for the proper management and treatment of patients.
