Abstract

We analyzed 1,598 Candida glabrata isolates for the presence of the cryptic species Candida nivariensis and Candida bracarensis. Both species were very rare in this collection (0.2% prevalence), despite the number of isolates analyzed and the global distribution of the isolates. We saw no associated antifungal resistance in C. nivariensis.
