Update on Candida auris – an interview with Ana Litvintseva

The fungi Candia auris has been responsible for a growing number of cases since its identification in 2009, and has caused concerns due to challenges in its diagnosis and treatment. In this interview, we speak to Ana Litvintseva, a Medical Mycologist and Team Lead at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC; GA, USA) about this fungi, its emergence and the challenges it presents.

First, could you introduce yourself and tell us a bit about your background?

My name is Ana Litvintseva, I am currently a Medical Mycologist working at the CDC in Atlanta. I’ve been at the CDC for about 6 years but I’ve been doing medical mycology for over 20 years.
