- Candida albicans
- This is the dominant organism in oral candidiasis (~80% of colonizing isolates).
- C. albicans may cause infection alone or in combination with non-C. albicans species.
- Typically susceptible to azole antifungals, but resistance can develop.
- Non-albicans Candida spp
- Most common non-C. albicans organisms: C. glabrata,C. tropicalis, C. dubliniensis and C. krusei.
- C. glabrata may occur as part of a mixed infection (along with C. albicans) and can cause fluconazole refractory infections, some of which can prove resistant to other azoles as well.
