Objective: To evaluate the antifungal activity of hydralazine hydrochloride alone and in synergy with azoles against Candida spp. and the action mechanism. Methods: We used broth microdilution assays to determine the MIC, checkerboard assays to investigate synergism, and flow cytometry and molecular docking tests to ascertain action mechanism. Results: Hydralazine alone had antifungal activity in the range of 16–128 μg/ml and synergistic effect with itraconazole versus 100% of the fungal isolates, while there was synergy with fluconazole against 11.11% of the isolates. There was molecular interaction with the receptors exo-B(1,3)-glucanase and CYP51, causing reduced cell viability and DNA damage. Conclusion: Hydralazine is synergistic with itraconazole and triggers cell death of Candida spp. at low concentrations, demonstrating antifungal potential.
