determining risk factors for candidemia among newborn infants from population-based surveillance: baltimore, maryland, 1998-2000.our objective was to determine risks factors for late onset candidemia, independent of birth weight, in newborn infants.200515999000
epidemiology of community-onset candidemia in connecticut and maryland.almost one-third of patients with bloodstream infections with candida species (candidemia) have onset of disease that occurs outside of the hospital or < or = 2 days after hospital admission (i.e., community-onset candidemia). we compared the characteristics of patients who developed candidemia by the timing of onset of infection.200616758415
prevalence of oral candida species ina north american pediatric population.oral candidiasis caused by species other than candida albicans has been observed. this study evaluated the prevalence of oral yeast species among 196 children during routine oral exam. based on standard mycological testing, 130 (66%) subjects had fungal growth. candida albicans isolates were recovered in 56% of children, but an extensive diversity in the non-albicans species was observed. intrinsic differences in the pediatric population may favor the presence of yeast species other than c. albi ...200719161062
esophageal candidiasis in pediatric acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: clinical manifestations and risk factors.little is known about the epidemiology and clinical features of esophageal candidiasis (ec) in pediatric aids. we therefore investigated the clinical presentation and risk factors of ec in a large prospectively monitored population of hiv-infected children at the national cancer institute.200010959741
candid albicans associated with the gastrointestinal tract of the common pigeon (columbia livia).candida albicans was cultured from the upper gastrointestinal tract of 44% and from the lower alimentary tract in 6% of 50 common pigeons (columba livia). thirty per cent of samples of pigeon droppings collected from different locations were positive for the yeast. the colony forming units for positive samples ranged from 2 times 10-2-2-8times 10-6 per g dry feces. the percentage of antigenic groups a and b for the strains of c. albicans isolated was approximately the same as for strains isolate ...19751091996
candida tropicalis in a neonatal intensive care unit: epidemiologic and molecular analysis of an outbreak of infection with an uncommon neonatal pathogen.from june to july 1998, two episodes of candida tropicalis fungemia occurred in the aristotle university neonatal intensive care unit (icu). to investigate this uncommon event, a prospective study of fungal colonization and infection was conducted. from december 1998 to december 1999, surveillance cultures of the oral cavities and perinea of the 593 of the 781 neonates admitted to the neonatal icu who were expected to stay for >7 days were performed. potential environmental reservoirs and possib ...200312574275
