Candida parapsilosis, Candida Torresil are also isolated as causative agents of Candida infections.
Pathogenicity and Clinical Significance
Infections caused by Candida spp. are in general referred to as candidiasis.
The clinical spectrum of candidiasis is extremely diverse. Almost any organ or system in the body can be affected. Candidiasis may be superficial and local or deep-seated and disseminated. Disseminated infections arise from hematogenous spread from the primarily infected locus. Candida albicans is the most pathogenic and most commonly encountered species among all. Its ability to adhere to host tissues, produce secretory aspartyl proteases and phospholipase enzymes, and transform from yeast to hyphal phase are the major determinants of its pathogenicity.
