A colorimetric antifungal susceptibility test was performed using 2,3-diphenyl-5-thienyl-(2)-tetrazolium chloride. Among 24 strains of Candida species, no trailing growth was found. In 22 and 20 strains, the MICs obtained in the colorimetric assay were within two dilutions of those obtained by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards method for ketoconazole and itraconazole, respectively.
