We report data on the frequency of the paradoxical effect of echinocandins against Candida spp. (n = 602 incident isolates) using the EUCAST definitive document EDef 7.2 procedure. The paradoxical effect for one or more echinocandins was observed in 16% of the isolates. However, differences between species were found, and the paradoxical effect was more common in Candida tropicalis (P < 0.001). Caspofungin was the drug in which the paradoxical effect was most common, followed by anidulafungin and micafungin (P < 0.001). Copyright © 2016 American Society for Microbiology.
