Abstract

TUON, Felipe Francisco  and  NICODEMO, Antonio Carlos. Candida albicans skin abscess. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2006, vol.48, n.5, pp. 301-302. ISSN 1678-9946.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46652006000500012.

Subcutaneous candidal abscess is a very rare infection even in immunocompromised patients. Some cases are reported when breakdown in the skin occurs, as bacterial cellulites or abscess, iatrogenic procedures, trauma and parenteral substance abuse. We describe a case of Candida albicans subcutaneous abscess without fungemia, which can be associated with central venous catheter.

Keywords : Candida albicans; Subcutaneous abscess; Fungemia.
