Factors Influencing the Virulence of Candida Spp

Knowledge on factors that promote candidiasis is essential to combat this infection and the risks associated with it, hence making the government health system more equipped against this problem.


Background: Diseases produced for Candida species (spp) are called candidiasis and this includes settling, superficial infection, deep tissue invasion and haematogenic dissemination (eyes, the skin, the kidneys and the brain). The species that more usually cause candidiasis are C albicans, C tropicalis and C glabrata. These species usually are found in the normal microbial populations of the mucosae and can be pathogenic due the vulnerability of the host.
