Candida spp. with acquired echinocandin resistance, France, 2004-2010. Dannaoui, E., Desnos-Ollivier, M., Garcia-Hermoso, D., Grenouillet, F., Cassaing, S., Baixench, M. T., Bretagne, S., Dromer, F., & Lortholary, O. Emerg Infect Dis, 18(1):86–90, January, 2012.

We report 20 episodes of infection caused by acquired echinocandin-resistant Candida spp. harboring diverse and new Fksp mutations. For 12 patients, initial isolates (low MIC, wild-type Fksp sequence) and subsequent isolates (after caspofungin treatment, high MIC, mutated Fksp) were genetically related.
