Intertrigo candidiasis


Dr. Nugrohoaji Dharmawan, Sp. KK, FINS DV, FAA DV


Candida species are associated with human beings for

quite long time as harmless commensals. They are
commonly found on the mucosal surfaces of
gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts and skin of

However, they become opportunistic pathogens in

immunologically weak and immunocompromised
patients. As opportunistic pathogens, they can cause local
mucosal infections and sometimes, systemic infections in
which Candida species can spread to all major organs and
colonize in these organs
Major types of candidiasis

Mucosal candidiasis
Candidal infections are restricted to non-sterile
mucosal surface for example oropharyngeal and
vulvuvaginal candidiasis
Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC)
 Oral candidiasis is one of the
most common, oral mucosal
infections seen in persons with
 Host local predisposing
conditions comprise: (i) reduced
saliva secretion, (ii) epithelial
changes and local mucosal
diseases, (iii) changes in
commensal flora, (iv) high
carbohydrate diet (v) denture
Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC)

 Vaginal candidiasis is the most

frequent reason for gynecology
consultation in primary health
care services
 The symptoms associated with
VVC are eczematoid dermatitis
lesions that sometimes show
vesicular and gray-white
psuedomembrane, vulval
pruritis, burning, erythema and
curd like discharge
 Cutaneous candidiasis
Cutaneous candidiasis is usually secondary infection of skin and nail
(body folds) in predisposed patients.

Disease involvement may be localized or generalized to the skin or

The spectrum of cutaneous candidiasis includes diaper rash, intertrigo
candidiasis, candida folliculitis, otomycosis, onychia and paronychia.

It usually occurs in warm, moist and creased area, such as axillary

folds, inguinal or intergluteal areas. It is fairly common opportunistic
disease and usually lead to maceration and trauma in skin. It is
commonly found in diabetics and obese people. Other predisposing
factors are antibiotic and oral contraceptives become macerated
