The "superbug fungus" Candida auris is a globally emerged pathogen that is often associated with multidrug resistance and high mortality. Since the first isolation in Japan in 2009, infections caused by this fungus have been reported in at least 27 countries on five continents, including China. Its wide spread and dramatically increased clinical cases lead to an intensive attention from both the clinical and the basic research communities worldwide. In this paper, we review recent progress of both clinical and biological aspects of C. auris. We focus on the global molecular epidemiology, genomic and virulent features, and drug resistance of clinical isolates. In addition, we discuss the potential measures for the diagnosis, treatment and control of C. auris infections in China.
