Table 1 In vitro antifungal susceptibility pattern of pathogenic Candida clinical isolates (from bloodstream) to the most commonly used drugs belonging to the four different classes of antifungals

From: Draft genome of a commonly misdiagnosed multidrug resistant pathogen Candida auris

  1. aAll these isolates were identified as C. haemulonii by Vitek2, which routinely fails to identify closely related species such as C. auris
