Candida tropicalis


Candida tropicalis is a species of yeast in the genus Candida. It is a common pathogen in neutropaenic hosts, in whom it may spread through the bloodstream to peripheral organs. For invasive disease, treatments include amphotericin B, echinocandins, or extended-spectrum triazole antifungals.

Contents

Recent research (as of September 2016) suggests that Candida tropicalis, working synergistically with Escherichia coli and Serratia marcescens, may cause or contribute to Crohn's disease.

Uses

Candida tropicalis can be used to produce biodiesel from olive trees.
