Abstract

Summary

Amongst 778 yeasts isolated from clinical specimens and tested for sensitivity to 5-fluorocytosine, 4·1 per cent. had minimum inhibitory concentrations of 31 μg of 5FC per ml, or more, a lower percentage of primary resistance than in some reported series. Resistance was found in 4·5 per cent. of , 0·7 per cent. of and 5·6 per cent. of . The minimum fungicidal concentrations for the resistant candida isolates greatly exceeded the minimum inhibitory concentrations, and some yeasts with low minimum inhibitory concentrations contained small numbers of highly resistant organisms.
