Abstract

Mass screening programs for superficial mycoses are rare in Turkey. The only study on soldiers in Turkey is a preliminary study 1. Hundreds of new soldiers are trained in Sivas which is a military area. In our study, we determined the incidence of Candida species among newly recruited soldiers in Sivas and their sensitivity to antifungal agents.
