Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis

Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis is caused by white blood cell’s poor function, which allows fungus candida infection to progress and persist in young adults or infants.

The candida fungus can result in thrush-mouth infection; as well as nails, skin, and scalp infections. Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis is most likely to occur in girls than in boys, and the severity of the disease varies. Some individuals develop chronic lungs disease and hepatitis, while others may develop endocrine disorders, such as underactive parathyroid gland.

Candida internal infection is rare. Usually, the infection may be treated with antifungal drugs clotrimazole or nystatin. More serious infection need a more stronger antifungal drugs, such as Ketoconazol taken orally or amphotericin B administered intravenously. Although the Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis is usually uncurable, transplantation of bone marrow is succesful in a single cases.
