The researches were made during February – June 2011 within the Microbiology Laboratory of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca. A total number of 16 Candida spp. strains isolated from both healthy and diseased animals from different species and humans and 2 ATCC strains, were tested regarding the sensitivity to antimycotics such as: Nystatin, Fluorocytosine, Miconazole, Itraconazole, Amphotericin B and Ketoconazole. For the isolated strains from parrot faeces, Miconazole and Amphotericin B were the most efficient; for dog otitis - Miconazole; for mastitis cow milk - Nystatin; for human tonsillitis – Amphotericin B; for ATCC 90028 – Miconazole and for ATCC 10231 – Amphotericin B. Regarding overall sensibility Miconazole was the most efficient antimycotic for all the strains tested in this study.
