There is considerable regional variability, and therefore, local epidemiological knowledge is critical in the effective management of invasive candidiasis. Only a few studies from India have reported candidemia rates of 6-18%, [2,3] and an increase in isolation of non-albicans candida (NAC) species from blood samples [4,5] has been reported.
Currently, the most commonly isolated agent in cases of invasive candidiasis is Candida albicans, but the frequency of non-albicans species is gradually increasing.
In the last years, the incidence of healthcare-associated fungal infections has been rising, mainly of invasive candidiasis and aspergillosis.
