Candida auris; Candida; C auris; Fungal - auris; Fungus - auris

Candida auris (C auris) is a type of yeast (fungus). It can cause a severe infection in hospital or nursing home patients. These people are often already very sick.

C auris infections often do not get better with the antifungal medicines that usually treat candida infections. When this occurs, the fungus is said to be resistant to antifungal medicines. This makes it very hard to treat the infection.

C auris infection is rare in healthy people.
