Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis is an immunodeficiency disorder which has significant morbidity due to mucous membrane, skin and nail infection. Attempts at reconstitution of immunological abnormalities have had only limited success. Ketoconazole is a newly available oral antifungal agent with activity against candida species. Prolonged administration of ketoconazole to four children with chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis caused marked improvement at infected sites. Resolution of nail infections took up to 12 months.
