Emergence of candidal infections are increasing from decades and found to be a leading cause of human disease and mortality. Candida spp. is one of the communal of human body and is known to cause opportunistic superficial and invasive infections. Many of mycoses-related deaths were due to Candida spp. Major shift of Candida infection towards NAC (non-albicans Candida) is matter of concern worldwide. In this study we had given a systemic review about medically important Candidaspp. Along with their morphological features, treatment and drugs. Spectrum of the pathogen is also discussed. Morphology of Different Medically Important Candida Species with their medical aspects along and pathogenic spectrum. Corn meal agar morphology along with anti-candida drugs has been discussed. The study is done after considering various published review’s and the mycological studies.
