Abstract

Candida auris is an emerging fungal pathogen that has caused global concern because of its multidrug-resistant nature and ability to cause uncontrollable nosocomial outbreaks. It is frequently misidentified as other Candida species by routine laboratory procedures, necessitating modern molecular diagnostic techniques for diagnosis. A relatively high mortality rate associated with this organism highlights the validity of implementation of strict infection control and preventive measures in the presence of infected or colonized patients.
