Macroscopic morphology

On Sabouraud dextrose agar, Candida tropicalis colonies are cream-colored with a slightly mycelial border. It may produce a thin surface film and bubbles when grown in Sabouraud broth [1295, 2202].

Microscopic morphology

On cornmeal tween 80 agar and at 25°C after 72 h, it produces oval blastospores which are located along the long pseudohyphae. The blastospores may appear singly or in clusters. The pseudohyphae branch abundantly. Candida tropicalis may also produce true hyphae [1295, 2202].
