    Abstract

    Methods of speciating Candida isolates from clinical specimens are described and the necessity of speciation is emphasized. Differences in susceptibility of C. albicans and C. tropicalis to amphotericin B were observed and the implications of this in relation to treatment with amphotericin B and the development of resistance are discussed.
