Abstract

Abstract A case initially presenting as chronic hyperplastic candidosis is described. After treatment with nystatin on three separate occasions over a seven-year period, a lesion similar to that diagnosed originally occurred in the same site. Further examination of this later occurrence showed it to be associated with the imperfect fungus Candida glabrata which had a high minimum inhibitory concentration for nystatin (>30 μg/ml). The lesion eventually resolved following treatment with miconazole gel and surgical excision of the hyperplastic tissue. The patient has remained symptomless for a two-year follow-up period.
