Abstract: 

Background: Funguria has been poorly studied, susceptibility testing is rarely performed and introduction of azoles could increase isolation of resistant species. Objective: We studied retrospectively (1988-2001) all episodes of yeast funguria diagnosed at our hospital. Methods: A funguria episode was defined as the first significant count (>10,000 CFU/ml) of a yeast in the urine culture. Susceptibility testing was performed using a broth microdilution method. Results: During the study period, a total of 2.962 episodes of funguria in 2.717 patients occurred. The funguria rate per 1,000 patient admissions increased significantly from 3.2 in 1988 to 6.0 in 2001 (p
