Summer, Swimming Pools, and Candida

Study revealed high incidence of yeast and yeast-like fungi. Candida spp. and Rhodotorula rubra were commonly detected, followed by Aspergillus spp. and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. Surprisingly, the prevalence of clinically important species isolated from swimming pool environments did not reflect prevalence of those species in Polish population. The present results are in agreement with previous research and support that swimming pools remain an important reservoir of clinically important fungi, yet the exposure associated with swimming pools may not be a major source of dermatophytic infection
