Abstract

In our epidemiological study of 439 patients with diabetes mellitus, the proportion of Candida albicans isolated by the oral rinse technique was 67%. A comparison of the conventional germ tube test with the API 20C Auxanogram kit revealed that 23.6% (129/546) of germ tube-positive species were not identified as C. albicans by the kit. The API 20C Auxanogram therefore underestimated the prevalence of C. albicans. Additionally, a significant number of yeasts (138/1050, 13.1%) isolated from these patients could not be reliably identified by the kit.
