Özet

Premature infants are at high risk of developing candidal infections originating from their own normal flora or from the hospital environment. This study involves the surveillance cultures and blood cultures of candidemic preterm infants with low birth weights who have been analyzed for colonization period and status, and for virulence factors such as acid proteinase and phospholipase.
