Isolation and identification of Candida Species in Patients with Vulvovaginal Candidiasis
Int.J.Adv.Microbiol.Health.Res.2021; 5(1):1-7

Publisher: IJAMHR, Category: Current Issues


Abnormal vaginal discharge is one of the frequent complaints of women of reproductive age group. This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) among the patients attending the Gouri Devi Institute of Medical Sciences and hospital with complaints of suggestive of vaginitis. This study was done in Gouri Devi Institute of Medical Sciences and hospital, Durgapur, West Bengal for a period of 6 months from January 2019 to June 2019. The study included 120 women of the age group 15 – 65 years with complaints suggestive of vaginitis. High vaginal swabs were taken and subjected to direct microscopy, cultured onto Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) and Hichrome Candida differential agar. Candida species were determined by standard microbiological methods and the results were confirmed. Candida species were isolated from 52 patients who had C.albicans (23), C.tropicalis (20), C.glabrata (5), C.dubliniensis (3) and C.krusei (1). Our study shows higher prevalence of non albicans Candida (NAC) causing VVC. Hence, we recommend that the investigations up to species identification of Candida may be routinely followed in the microbiology laboratories.
