Abstract

Candida guilliermondii (C.g.) occurs in animals, but it can also affect humans. Morris and Morris’ have detected C.g. in human vaginal smear, Utley et al.2 in the case of endocarditis, Dick et al.3 in the case of fatal disseminated candidiasis, and Santha et al.4 have found out that 25 of blood donors had C.g. precipitins and agglutinins. Sutka and Sutka5, 6 have produced by biotechnological method a preparation which may make rapid diagnosis possible. They have proved that in cows and heifers C.g. causes serious genital changes, eg. thickening of the uterus, reduction in the excretion of sexual hormones, asymptomatic infertility, reduced functional sperm index, and have treated these animals succesfully7, 8.
