Part Description

LP145685-6   Candida krusei
Candida krusei is an elongated facultative saprophyte of variable shape and size. It takes on both yeast and pseudohyphae morphological forms. It is found in various natural habitats including in the atmosphere, fruits, sewage, silage, soil, dairy, meat, pickles, sugar, wine, and beer. Serious infections are seen in immunocompromised patients with hematologic malignancies, especially leukemia, and in transplant recipients. A rise in the number of infections with C krusei is associated with the spread of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the use of the antifungal triazole fluconazole. C krusei is also the cause of infection due to invasive medical procedures performed on immunocompromised patients that can cause endophthalmitis, arthritis, and endocarditis. Mortality rates due to C. krusei
bloodstream infection have been reported at nearly 50%.C krusei is naturally resistant to fluconazole and has decreased susceptibility to both flucytosine and amphotericin B.[PMID:18077633][PMID:7966200] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
