Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient with a brain abscess due to Candida albicans is reported. This patient had three episodes of systemic candidiasis in spite of the fact that she had no underlying debilitating disease and had never received prior antibiotic or adrenocortical steroid therapy. A review of the literature reveals 42 cases of central nervous system Candida albicans infection. The salient features of these cases are tabulated and discussed. The clinical features, pathology, pathogenesis, treatment, and aetiology of cerebral candidiasis are also discussed.
