- •Candida auris is now present in the American continent.
- •C. auris is a multiresistant pathogen able to cause nosocomial outbreaks in pediatric and adult patients exposed to antibiotics and multiple invasive medical procedures.
- •Mortality rates of C. auris fungemia is lower in pediatric population than in adults.
