New Threat in Newborns: Multiresistant Non-Albicans Candidemia

Dr Baishali Chakraborty, Dr Dibyendu Banerjee, Dr Sharmistha Koley, Dr Banya Chakraborty

Candida species remain the most frequent cause of opportunistic fungal infections in children as well as the third most common cause of paediatric healthcare associated bloodstream infection worldwide. Recent concern has centred on the increasing proportion of candidemia episodes caused by non-albicans Candida spp. given their association with fluconazole resistance patterns. This study dentified different species of Candida from neonates admitted with blood stream Candida infections, and their antifungal susceptibility patterns were determined using Hexa antimyco -01 (HiMedia). In the present study NAC species accounted for 100 % of the cases of neonatal candidemia, with C.albicans scoring a total zero. The ominous feature that came out is that only Itraconazole showed a good sensitivity pattern among all the antifungals.
