Yes, this probably is why treatment hasn't been effective. C. glabrata is often resistant to all "azole" drugs. Alternate drugs likely to be effective include nystatin and the group of anti-fungal antibiotics called echinocandins, such as micofungin, caspofungin, and others. Seek consultation from an infectious diseases or STI expert; there are world-class experts in Singapore. Good luck.
