Abstract

Kodamaea ohmeri was isolated from a 38-year-old HIV seropositive woman with pseudomembranous oral candidiasis. The isolate was identified by the API 20 C yeast identification system and confirmed by sequence analysis. Antifungal susceptibility testing done by E-test showed that the isolate was susceptible to voriconazole, amphotericin B and caspofungin.
