Abstract :

Candidiasis, candidosis, moniliasis, oidiomycosis or thrush is a fungal infection (mycosis) caused by Candida species, of which
Candida albicans is the most common. This disease is also commonly known as yeast infection. The symptoms range from
superficial, e.g., oral thrush and vaginitis to systemic that may be life threatening disease referred to as candemia which is seen in
persons with low immunity. People who suffer from superficial infections of skin and mucosal membranes feel local inflammation
and discomfort. Different types of symptoms such as redness, itching and discomfort are witnessed but if the disease is left untreated
it may lead to complications even may be fatal. Candidiasis remains localized in the skin or mucosal membranes, including the
oral cavity (thrush), the pharynx or esophagus, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary bladder or the genitalia (vagina, penis) in
immunocompetent persons. In case of fungemia called candemia, Candida infections can affect the esophagus with the potential of
becoming systemic causing a much more serious condition. Thrush is commonly seen in infants.
