Abstract

Mixed fungal infection and acquired echinocandin resistance of Candida spp. remain infrequent. In this study we have reported the case of a patient hospitalized for tuberculosis who experienced multiple infections due to three common Candida species (C. albicans, C. glabrata, C. tropicalis). Furthermore, consecutive isolates from blood cultures and heart valve were found resistant to azoles (C. tropicalis) and to echinocandin with either novel (C. tropicalis) or previously described (C. albicans) missense mutations in the Fks gene.
