Abstract

The study of serotyping of isolates of Candida albicans of clinical material obtained from different geographic areas of Venezuela suggest that serotype A is predominant over type B. These results are in relation with results obtained in other countries. Type A serotype is predominant in 57 to 100% in the areas studied. Only in 2 cities serotype B was isolated. Both serotypes of Candida albicans were observed in intertriginous, mucosal, inguinal and lung forms. These studies have allowed us to have information about the predominance of serotypes in certain areas of the country.
