systemic neonatal candidosis: the karyotyping of candida albicans strains isolated from neonates and health-workers.candida albicans has become an important cause of nosocomial infections in neonatal intensive care units (nicus). the aim of the present study was to compare c. albicans strains isolated from neonates (nn) suffering from systemic candidosis and from nurses in order to determine the relatedness between nn and health workers' strains. thirty-one c. albicans strains were isolated from 18 nn admitted to the nicu of the neonatology service of farhat hached hospital of sousse, tunisia and suffering fr ...201019207844
clinical and mycological features of onychomycosis in central tunisia: a 22 years retrospective study (1986-2007).onychomycosis is the most frequently encountered nail disease and may be difficult to diagnose and treat. the objective of this study was to determine the prevalence, the clinical and mycological characteristics of onychomycosis in central tunisia. it is a retrospective study performed over a 22-year period (1986-2007). it included 7151 patients (4709 women and 2442 men) with suspected fingernails and/or toenails onychomycosis. the patients were referred to the mycology-parasitology laboratory o ...201323094998
neonatal invasive candidiasis in tunisian hospital: incidence, risk factors, distribution of species and antifungal susceptibility.the aim of our study was to assess epidemiological features of neonatal invasive candidiasis in farhat hached hospital of sousse, tunisia, including incidence, risk factors, mortality, species distribution and antifungal susceptibility. laboratory data from 1995 to 2010 and medical records of 127 invasive candidiasis cases were reviewed. we tested the susceptibility of 100 candida sp isolates by using atb fungus(®) 3 and to fluconazole by using e-test(®) strips. a total of 252 cases of neonatal ...201222448706
molecular typing of clinical candida strains using random amplified polymorphic dna and contour-clamped homogenous electric fields electrophoresis.this report describes an investigation into the genetic profiles of 38 candida albicans and 19 candida glabrata strains collected from a dental hospital of monastir (tunisia) and the laboratory of parasitology, farhat hached hospital of sousse (tunisia), using two typing methods: random amplified polymorphic dna (rapd) and contour-clamped homogenous electric fields (chef).200919558471
phenotypic characterization and adhesive properties of vaginal candida spp. strains provided by the chu farhat hached (sousse, tunisia).vulvovaginal candidiasis is a common infection among women worldwide, being candida albicans the most commonly isolated species. therefore, controlling this opportunistic yeast is one of the key factors for reducing nosocomial infection.201525618183
in vitro antimicrobial activity of four ficus carica latex fractions against resistant human pathogens (antimicrobial activity of ficus carica latex).methanolic, hexanoïc, chloroformic and ethyl acetate extracts of ficus carica latex were investigated for their in vitro antimicrobial proprieties against five bacteria species and seven strains of fungi. the green fruit latex was collected from chott mariam souse, middle east coast of tunisia. the antimicrobial activity of the extracts was evaluated and based respectively on the inhibition zone using the disc-diffusion assay, minimal inhibition concentration (mic) for bacterial testing and the ...201020067867
temporal similarity between candida albicans genotypes in a tunisian neonatal intensive care unit suggests several nosocomial cross-contamination episodes.the nosocomial transmission of candida albicans in neonatal intensive care units (nicus) is an increasing concern and understanding the route of this transmission is critical for adequate infection control measures. the aim of our study was to assess the likeliness of nosocomial acquisition of c. albicans in the nicu of farhat hached hospital in sousse (tunisia). we genotyped 82 isolates from 40 neonates and 7 isolates from 5 health care workers (hcws) with onychomycosis, by using cdc3 microsate ...201222335233
