Figure 8

Isolates from sequential episodes of recurrent vaginal candidiasis caused by a single strain. (A) The original large-colony phenotype in episode 1. (B) The small- and medium-sized-colony phenotype in episode 2. DNA fingerprinting with probe Ca3 demonstrated that all colonies represented the same strain. Plating experiments demonstrated that small- and medium-sized-colony phenotype cells switched back to the large- colony phenotype. Reprinted from reference 82.
