When Candida dubliniensis isolates obtained from seabird excrement and from humans in Ireland were compared by using multilocs sequence typing, 13 of 14 avian isolates were genetically distinct from human isolates. The remaining avian isolate was indistinguishable from a human isolate, suggesting that transmission may occur between humans and birds.
