Thinking beyond the common Candida species: Need for speciation of Candida due to the emergence of multidrug resistant Candida auris.

Candida species are one of the leading causes of nosocomial infections. Because much of the treatment for Candida infections is empiric, some institutions do not identify Candida to species. With the worldwide emergence of the multidrug resistant species Candida auris, identification of Candida to species level has new clinical relevance. Species should be identified for invasive candidiasis isolates, and speciation can be considered for selected non-invasive isolates to improve detection of C. auris.
