prevalence and antifungal susceptibility of 442 candida isolates from blood and other normally sterile sites: results of a 2-year (1996 to 1998) multicenter surveillance study in quebec, canada.during a 2-year surveillance program (1996 to 1998) in quebec, canada, 442 strains of candida species were isolated from 415 patients in 51 hospitals. the distribution of species was as follows: candida albicans, 54%; c. glabrata, 15%; c. parapsilosis, 12%; c. tropicalis, 9%; c. lusitaniae, 3%; c. krusei, 3%; and candida spp., 3%. these data, compared to those of a 1985 survey, indicate variations in species distribution, with the proportions of c. glabrata and c. parapsilosis increasing by 9 an ...200111230409
