The correct identification of the species within the Candida parapsilosis complex has become relevant due to the resistance of Candida metapsilosis to antifungals. We describe the characteristics of the Candida parapsilosis complex isolates, with respect to antifungal resistance and biofilm formation.
We perform a descriptive cross-sectional study in 30 strains, collected in a tertiary hospital. All strains, were identified by Vitek2, Vitek-MS? systems and by ITS sequencing. The antifungal susceptibility profile was obtained with Sensititre? panels, while biomass production and metabolic activity were quantified by means of crystal violet and XTT reduction assay, respectively.
There was a 100% correlation between Vitek-MS? and ITS sequencing. All isolates were susceptible to the nine antifungals tested. The metabolic activity and biomass production tests did not show any difference among the subtypes.
The Vitek-MS? system provides acceptable identification. We did not find significant differences neither in azole resistance nor in biofilm formation.
