Two isolates of Candida dubliniensis were identified from a collection of 30 examined from Israel in a molecular epidemiology study. The 30 isolates were tentatively identified as Candida albicans. The new species, C. dubliniensis, is being reported from new geographic locales. These two isolates, from an Arab and a Druze patient, are the first to be reported from the Middle East.
