AbstractStudy included, 10 local isolates were obtained from 25 isolates of Candida spp. From patients infected with Candidiasis in hospitals of Mosul city. The phenotypic, microscopic diagnosis and biochemical tests found the isolates were identified as Candida sp. Local isolates were tested for resistance to 8 different antibiotics and 6 heavy metal salts. All isolates were resistant to most antibiotics with ratio 100%, except for the antibiotic nystatin (Nys), where all isolates showed sensitivity in the ratio 100%. also The isolates showed sensitivity to four of the heavy metals salts in different proportions, while they were resistant to zinc chloride (ZnCl2) and lead acetate Pb (CH3COO) 2 with ratio 100%.
