Abstract

This 13-year retrospective study investigated risk factors for candidemia secondary to Candida species with increased likelihood of fluconazole resistance. Of 344 candidemia cases, 23 were caused by C glabrata or C krusei (CGCK). Age >2 years, recent fluconazole exposure, and recent surgery were independent risk factors for CGCK.
