Abstract

About 30 samples were collected from burn areas from patients attending Al-Hussein Teaching
Hospital in Dhi Qar governorate for the period between 2-4 for the year 2020. 7 types of fungi and
yeasts, represented by the following fungi, have been isolated candida kruzei, candida tropicalis, and
Rhizopus, candida albican, candida glabrata, Aspirgillus spp, rhodotorella. The results showed that
Aspergillus spp. Was dominant over the rest of the fungi, with a rate of 36.36% over the rest of the fungi
species, while candida albican yeast appeared with a frequency of 28.18% compared to the rest of the
other fungi, and the rate of appearance of other fungi was about 12-3% compared to the rest of the other
fungi. The fungi were distinguished by the fact that they are all of the opportunistic type, which begins
to infect the body when there is a weakening of immunity or infection with the associated burns and
ulcers.
