One thousand eight hundred and thirty three significant yeast strains, other than Cryptococcus species, were isolated over four years, from various clinical specimens. Of these, 907 isolates were recovered from patients with known compromised states. Candida albicans was the most frequent species at all sites of the body, in all different clinical conditions with or without compromised resistance, and showed an overall prevalence of 73.6 per cent. Candida tropicalis, the second commonest species, with an overall frequency of 18.7 per cent showed relatively higher association in patients with compromised resistance and was particularly more frequent in specimens from gastrointestinal tract. Other Candida species, Trichosporon and Geotrichum species accounted for less than 8 per cent of all isolates. Eight out of 10 Candida glabrata isolates were from compromised cases.
