Abstract

Manifestations of Candida infections vary, so that disease may involve only mucous membranes, and are considered “local” infections, or may involve deep organs, in which case disseminated disease is present. The ability to distinguish between the different types of disease is important, since methods of diagnosis and therapy will vary dependent upon the type of infection present.
