Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis

Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis It has been said that Candida albicans can be a better clinician than most physicians and may detect systemic abnormalities before they are recognizable at the laboratory level. Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis developed in a 7-year-old boy long before a diagnosis of marked hypothyroidism (thyroid stimulating hormone, 825μU/ml; T4 test [tetraiodothyronine], 0.3μg/100 ml) could be established. Normalization of the thyroid status by replacement therapy resulted in dramatic improvement of the infection which had previously been resistant to prolonged anticandidal treatment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

It has been said that Candida albicans can be a better clinician than most physicians and may detect systemic abnormalities before they are recognizable at the laboratory level. Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis developed in a 7-year-old boy long before a diagnosis of marked hypothyroidism (thyroid stimulating hormone, 825μU/ml; T4 test [tetraiodothyronine], 0.3μg/100 ml) could be established. Normalization of the thyroid status by replacement therapy resulted in dramatic improvement of the infection which had previously been resistant to prolonged anticandidal treatment.
