Candida granuloma, an unusual infection produced byCandida albicans, usually begins in early childhood and prior to the use of amphotericin B pursued an invariably chronic and progressive course. Immunologic abnormalities in the host have frequently been considered to be the essential predisposing factor for the development of this syndrome. This paper presents the results of studies of several parameters associated with host-parasite relationships in a patient with Candida granuloma. Special… Expand
Monilial granuloma (Candida).
TLDR
This is the first reported case of a patient with combined infections from Candida albicans, Microsporum canis, and Staphylococcus aureus, and a specific immunologic unresponsiveness to CAlbicans accounts for the development of this infection. Expand
Candida granuloma. A clinical and immunologic study.
TLDR
Parenteral amphotericin B therapy for intercurrentCryptococcus neoformansmeningitis resulted in subsequent complete clearing of the candidosis and the patient has remained free of recurrence for 1½ years and the delayed cutaneous anergy and lymphopenia has remitted. Expand
Coccidioidomycosis of the Larynx in Infants and Adults
TLDR
The authors' experience with disseminated coccidioidomycosis presenting in the larynx of adults and infants successfully treated with amphotericin B are presented and discussed. Expand
Prolonged oral treatment of chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis with Amphotericin B.
TLDR
A more extensive oral trial of amphotericin B in CMCC seems fully justified after continuous treatment over a six-month period resulted in complete clearing of extensive candidal granuloma lesions. Expand
OPPORTUNISTIC YEAST INFECTIONS, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO CANDIDIASIS
TLDR
The most common and most intensively studied yeast-like isolate from clinical materials is Candida albicans, which outnumbers T . Expand
Disseminated Candidiasis: Newer Approaches to Early Recognition and Treatment
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the immediate institution of antifungal therapy before laboratory test results are known may favorably alter the outcome of this frequently fatal condition. Expand
Severe Candidal Infections: Clinical Perspective, Immune Defense Mechanisms, and Current Concepts of Therapy
TLDR
Research in patients with chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis and in-vitro manipulations have begun to elucidate normal immune defense mechanisms against Candida, including serum factors, phagocytosis, intracellular killing mechanisms, and lymphocyte function (particularly T cell). Expand
Leukocyte candidacidal activity and resistance to systemic candidiasis in patients with cancer
TLDR
Although their ability to ingest C. albicans was unimpaired, neutrophils from patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease and acute leukemia and from patients receiving chemotherapy for metastatic cancer frequently manifested impaired candidacidal activity. Expand
Cutaneous anergy without systemic disease. A syndrome associated with mucocutaneous fungal infection.
TLDR
She may represent the first documented case of cutaneous anergy without systemic disease, a syndrome that would have clinical significance, and is interpreted as a nonspecific finding that may occur in normal subjects, in dermatologic disease and in a spectrum of immunologic abnormalities. Expand
Candidose úlcero-vegetante da perna
TLDR
A case of ulcerative and vegetative cutaneous candidiasis as a single lesion, localized on the inferior third of right leg is presented, and dose of the Ketoconazole treatment in the first month which was reduced to 200mg daily dose in the second month, and the lesion cured completely without its posterior relapse.

Candidiasis--serology and diagnosis.
TLDR
There has long been controversy as to the precise significance of Candida albicans in human disease, and serological and immunological methods have therefore been sought to base a diagnosis. Expand
Immune studies in candidiasis. 3. Precipitating antibodies in systemic candidiasis.
TLDR
Immune diffusion in agar gel may be of value as an aid in the diagnosis of chronic systemic candidiasis because a single, commercially available antigen will precipitate with antibodies to several species of Candida. Expand
The biology of experimental human cutaneous moniliasis (Candida albicans).
TLDR
There has been no want of zeal in writing about moniliasis but there is a great lack of information on the dynamics of infection, the host-parasite relationship, and even so simple a thing as the histopathology. Expand

EFFECTS OF CULTURAL CONDITIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANTIGENS BY COCCIDIOIDES IMMITIS.
TLDR
A variety of factors appear to be important in determining the specificity and potency of these antigens, including possible strain differences, conditions of cultures and methods of extraction. Expand
Acute cerebral phycomycosis (mucormycosis). Report of a pediatric patient successfully treated with amphotericin B and cycloheximide and review of the pertinent literature.
TLDR
A classical example of acute cerebral phycomycosis in a 15-year-old girl who was debilitated by diabetic acidosis is presented and it is suggested that control of the basic disease, adequate surgical drainage, and the administration of antifungal agents should be effective in lowering this high mortality rate.

Idiopathic acquired agammaglobulinemia associated with thymoma. Report of two cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
The acquired form affects previously healthy males and females and is usually secondary to lymphomas, injury to lymphoid tissue by x-rays or nitrogen mustards, multiple myeloma or other diseases characterized by dysproteinemia. Expand
Pattern of 39,500 serologic tests in coccidioidomycosis.
TLDR
The results of precipitin and complement-fixation tests have been analyzed in 5,579 cases of nondisseminating and 722 cases of disseminated coccidioidal infection, with the proportion of positive tests reaching a maximum of 91% in the third week. Expand
Inhibition of growth of pathogenic yeasts by human serum.
TLDR
The humoral mechanisms of natural resistance to pathogenic fungi have been the subject of increased study in recent years and serum possesses a high capacity to inhibit the growth and reproduction of this pathogenic yeast in a medium which alone supports luxuriant growth. Expand
Congenital Cutaneous Candidiasis
TLDR
The case recorded here is of a full-term infant with diffuse congenital cutaneous candidiasis whose mother had no known rupture of the amnionic sac before delivery. Expand
