CDC COCA Call: Multidrug-resistant Candida auris
Candida auris (C. auris) is an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat. CDC is concerned about C. auris for 3 main reasons: It’s often multidrug-resistant, it’s difficult to identify with standard laboratory methods, and it can be misidentified in labs without specific technology. It has caused outbreaks in healthcare settings. It’s important to quickly identify C. auris in a hospitalized patient so that healthcare facilities can take special precautions to stop its spread.
