Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Candidemia is a life-threatening infection that has been reported to be associated with poorer outcomes in trauma patients. The present study aimed to investigate the epidemiology of candidemia in non-burn patients with polytrauma.
Material and Methods: We conducted a retrospective, single-center, observational study of polytrauma patients with candidemia admitted to the surgical intensive care units of a university hospital in Turkey between 2013 and 2017 on.
Results: The incidence of candidemia was 127 episodes per 1000 intensive care unit admissions in polytrauma patients. Non-albicans Candida species accounted for 75.5% of all candidemia episodes. C. parapsilosis (51.05%) was the predominant species, followed by C. albicans (24.52%) and C. tropicalis (12.21%). The highest crude mortality rate (72%) was observed in patients with C. parapsilosis candidemia. In multivariate analyses, who had undergone prior gastrointestinal surgery were 7.1 times more likely to have C. parapsilosis candidemia than those with other strains.
Conclusion: Our study, remarkable, demonstrated a high incidence of Candidemia had in polytrauma patients, and non-albicans Candida species were the most frequently isolated candida species. According to our study findings, a prior history of gastrointestinal surgery may help predict C. parapsilosis, as the causative agent of candidemia in polytrauma patients. However, since our study was observational and limited to such a small number of patients, the results obtained should be applied with caution.

Keywords: Candidemia; Candida parapsilosis; gastrointestinal surgery; polytrauma;  surgical intensive care unit
