ABSTRACT

Background: Contamination of classroom environments and surfaces of classroom chairs by candida species is a common phenomenon. The hand borne transmission through contact with contaminated chair surfaces is one of the most common routes of transmission of candida. Aim/Objective: To determine the prevalence of candida on hands and classroom chairs of students of faculty of health science and technology, Nnamdi azikiwe university, Nnewi Campus. Methodology: A total of 100 samples collected from chairs and palms of students of College of Health Science and Technology, Nnewi campus. The samples were collected aseptically by swabbing classroom chairs and hands of students. This was taken to the laboratory within 1hour and cultured on Sabouraund Dextrose Agar (SDA) supplemented with chloroamphenicol at 0.05mg/per ml and incubated at room temperature for 24hours. Obtained data was analysed using Chi-square. Result: The study showed that the most isolated organism was Candida specie which has the highest occurrence 30 (30.0%), followed by Cladosporium with the frequency 25(25.0%). The least organism isolated was Aspergillus flavus 6(6.0%), while the highest occurring Aspergillus spp was Aspergillus nievus 10 (10.0%). From the students’ palms, a total of 23 organisms were isolated with the highest occurring organism being Candida spp with 30.4% of the entire population of this group. Also, a total of 24 organisms were isolated from chairs and tables,and the most isolated organism being Cladosporium with 41.7% of the entire population of this group. Conclusion: The study revealed that the indoor environment of the classrooms in this Campus is to a considerable extent contaminated with fungal spores and yeast (candida spp) infection.
