Candida glabrata

Candida glabrata


General Information

  • Fluconazole (susceptible-dose dependent)

  • Amphotericin B

Fungus - Yeast

Colonization and invasive infection in compromised hosts especially in the setting of exposure to antifungal (i.e. fluconazole) and broad spectrum antimicrobials

  • Candidemia

  • Line infections

  • Intra-abdominal infection

  • Surgical wound infection

  • Endocarditis

  • Infectious Disease consultation recommended in invasive infection

  • Cultures yielding Candida spp. from non-sterile sites (e.g. stool, urine, mucocutaneous sites, respiratory samples) typically do not represent infection, but rather colonization of that surface

  • Cultures yielding Candida spp. from sterile fluid (e.g. blood, CSF, peritoneum, deep tissue) almost always reflective of invasive infection
