Systemic candidiasis

Systemic candidiasis: Introduction

Systemic candidiasis: A candida infection that spreads throughout the body. If it invades major organs such as the brain and heart, death may result. It is rare in healthy individuals and tends to occur in immunocompromised individuals. The disorder is difficult to diagnose as it can invade almost any organ of the body and hence the symptoms are hugely variable. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Systemic candidiasis is available below.
