Background and Objective: Fungal pathogenesis is based on the fungal compliance with environmental conditions and resistance to host cell defenseIn this study, the freguency of Nosocomial Fungal Infections in hospitals are discussed.

Materials and Methods :This descriptive study was performed on 180 patients with suspected fungal infections. Direct smear and culture samples were taken for mycology studies and simultaneously Candida species were identified by diagnostic methods, such as chromium agar and RFLP-PCR.

Results: Out of 134 cases of fungal infections, 53 cases (39.5%) of nosocomial infection and 81 cases (60.5%) of community acquired infection had been reported. The most common nosocomial infection was in the ICU ward of Hospitals. The only major cause of nosocomial fungal infections in this study, was genus Candida.

Conclusion: There are significant differences in ferguency of nosocomial infection among the wards. Due to the possibility of the fungal colonization spread and septicemia caused by fungi, the prognosis of these infections nd treatment of them if needed, is an important step in preventing possible risks of these infections.

Key words: Nosocomial infections, Candidia species, RFLP-PCR.


Funding: This research was personally funded.

Conflict of interest: None declared.

Ethical approval: The Ethics Committee of Kerman University of Medical Sciences, and the Research Committee of Islamic Azad University Falavarjan Branch approved the study.
