Candida auris

Current Opinion in Infectious Diseases
Katja SarisAndreas Voss

Abstract

To give an update on the recent emergence of Candida auris. C. auris is a pathogen, that evades present therapeutic options, that is highly virulent, causes disease in all types of patients, and spreads easily in the environment and among patients, thereby posing an imminent threat to our patients. The fact that C. auris, in addition, is more resilient to environmental disinfection and frequently misclassified during microbiological diagnostics only heightens its potential as a 'perfect villain.' Healthcare institutions, especially hospitals, need to ensure that their diagnostic and infection control policies to handle C. auris are in place.
