Abstract

MACEDO, Danielle Patrícia Cerqueira et al. Candida Glabrata Esophagitis: new case reports and management. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.39, n.2, pp.279-281. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822008000200015.

Candida esophagitis (CE) is a common opportunistic infection in the immunocompromised host. C. glabrata is rarely cited as agent of CE and has been underestimated due to lack of proper identification. In this study, two cases of C. glabrata esophagitis in AIDS and chagasic patients are reported. Diagnosis of Candida species should be considered an important key for the ideal choice of antifungal therapy against this mycosis.

Keywords : Candida glabrata; esophagitis; AIDS; Chagas disease.
