To evaluate methods for differentiating Candida albicans and Candida dubliniensis, 772 putative C. albicans bloodstream isolates were tested for growth at 37 and 42degreesC. Isolates showing no growth at 42degreesC, abundant chlamydospore production, and the sugar assimilation pattern of the type strain were confirmed by DNA-based procedures to be C. dubliniensis.
