Objective: As part of the normal human flora of the skin and gastrointestinal tract, Trichosporon species may lead to opportunistic infections through underlying facilitating factors. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common infections occurring in intensive care units (ICUs), where catheterization procedures are performed extensively. The aim of the study investigates the antifungal susceptibility of T. asahii strains isolated from urine samples.
