Abstract

The in vitro antifungal activity of amphotericin B (AMB), itraconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole, terbinafine (TRB), caspofungin, anidulafungin and micafungin were evaluated by a broth microdilution technique against 22 isolates of Arthrographis kalrae of clinical origin. TRB showed the highest activity, followed by the azoles, particularly posaconazole. AMB exerted low activity whereas the echinocandins showed almost no antifungal activity.
