As to the correspondence between CHROMagar Candida and multiplex PCR, it was found that the pink colonies could correspond to Candida krusei and Candida parapsilosis
and that in regarding blue colonies, one was not identified as Candida tropicalis.
: epidemiology, pathogenicity, clinical manifestations and antimicrobial susceptibility.
Various trials have revealed that Candida albicans remains, the most common fungal agent associated with invasive candida infection (ICI) regardless of age (55%), followed by Candida parapsilosis
, Candida tropicalis, Candida glabrata, and krusei17.
Although Candida albicans is the predominant species isolated from vaginal samples (85-95%), Candida non-albicans (CNA) species have been reported with increasing frequency, mainly Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis
, Candida tropicalis and Candida krusei (BAUTERS et al., 2002; LOPESCONSOLARO et al., 2004).
The most common fungus was Candida albicans (47.3%), followed by Candida parapsilosis
There are however a number of cases in the literature reporting fungal organisms causing MOE, including Asperigillus species (6-8), Candida parapsilosis
(9), Candida ciferri, Pseudoallescheria boydii, Malassezia sympodialis and Scedosporium apiospermum (5,10).

(2,4) Although C albicans is most often responsible for disease in pet birds, Candida parapsilosis
and Candida tropicalis also have been cultured from lesions in affected birds.
