Summaries for Candidiasis

CDC : 3 Invasive candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida. Unlike Candida infections in the mouth and throat (also called "thrush") or vaginal "yeast infections," which are localized to one part of the body, invasive candidiasis is a serious infection that can affect the blood, heart, brain, eyes, bones, or other parts of the body.1 Candida normally lives inside the body (in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina) and on the skin without causing any problems.2 However, in certain patients who are at risk, Candida can enter the bloodstream or internal organs and cause an infection. A Candida bloodstream infection, also called candidemia, is the most common form of invasive candidiasis.1 In the United States, candidemia is one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections in hospitalized patients,3–4 and it often results in long hospital stays and death. It is also responsible for high medical costs.5 Antifungal medication can treat invasive candidiasis. Certain patients such as those with cancer or bone marrow or organ transplants might receive antifungal medication to prevent invasive candidiasis.6

MalaCards based summary : Candidiasis, also known as systemic candidiasis, is related to candidiasis, familial, 2 and oral candidiasis. An important gene associated with Candidiasis is AIRE (Autoimmune Regulator), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Akt Signaling. The drugs Anidulafungin and Voriconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, colon and skin, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system

Disease Ontology : 12 An opportunistic mycosis that involves fungal infection of the mouth, throat, skin, scalp, vagina, fingers, nails, bronchi, lungs, heart and brain by Candida species, of which Candida albicans is the most common. Systemic Candida infections are usually confined to severely immunocompromised persons.

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Systemic candidiasis includes a spectrum of yeast infections caused by different species (types) of Candida. It is a serious infection that can affect the blood, heart, brain, eyes, bones, or other parts of the body. Although there are over 200 species of Candida, five different species of Candida cause 90% of systemic candidiasis. The most common form of this invasive yeast infection is when Candida enters the bloodstream (candidemia). Signs of candidemia include fever and chills that do not improve with antibiotics. Symptoms of other types of systemic candidiasis depend on the organ or system which is infected. Systemic candidiasis is the most common fungal infection among hosptilized people in high-income countries, including the United States. Diagnosis can be difficult, especially when the Candida is not found in the bloodstream. Treatment usually includes consists of oral or intravenous (IV) antifungal medications.
