Management of Recurrent Vulvo-Vaginal Candidosis as a Chronic Illness
TLDR
Attention has to be given to take the disease seriously, follow strict treatment regimens, and advise precisely and based on individual evidence concerning any possible risk factors for recurrence, in case of therapy-resistant vulvo-vaginitis. Expand
An Update on the Roles of Non-albicans Candida Species in Vulvovaginitis
TLDR
The etiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of NAC vulvovaginitis is reviewed, which is milder in presentation, often occur in patients with underlying chronic medical conditions and symptoms tend to be more recurrent or chronic compared with C. albicans vaginitis. Expand
[The role of the symptomatic and asymptomatic sexual partners in the recurrent vulvovaginitis].
TLDR
There was a predominance of C. albicans in male partners with the recurrence of vaginitis and symptomatic or asymptomatic partners can play an important role as a reservoir and source of transmission of yeast, especially in cases of recurrent vulvovaginitis. Expand

Characterization of women with a history of recurrent vulvovaginal candidosis
TLDR
History, signs, and symptoms in women with a history of recurrent vulvovaginal candidosis (RVVC) and who had consulted with symptoms generally associated with the condition are characterized. Expand

TLDR
Treatment of RVVC, including local and systemic antimicrobial therapy and behaviour modification to decrease the risk of recurrences, are discussed. Expand
An investigation into the pathogenesis of vulvo-vaginal candidosis
TLDR
The findings support the theory of vaginal relapse and thus may support the use of more prolonged courses of antifungal therapy initially to increase the chances of eradication of the yeast. Expand
Chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis: characteristics of women with Candida albicans, C glabrata and no candida.
TLDR
It is suggested that reliance on symptoms and signs alone will result in significant misdiagnosis of chronic vulvovaginitis and vaginal yeast cultures, while not necessary for every patient, are valuable in confirming negative diagnoses, detecting microscopy false-negatives, and identifying non-C albicans isolates.

TLDR
The identification and treatment of the male sexual partner's Candida colonization seems important in the prevention of recurrent vulvovaginitis. Expand

TLDR
Future prospective investigations shall prove whether a consequent treatment of both partners to eradicate all identical yeasts is able to improve the treatment results in such women. Expand

TLDR
In Ile-Ife, Nigeria, tight fitting dresses, woolen and corduroy jeans, coupled with nylon underwear, appear to create an environment favorable to Candida albicans colonization. Expand

TLDR
Frequent sexual intercourse was the strongest risk factor (seven or more times a week versus none): OR = 4.3; 95% CI: 1.4, 12.9 (for cases versus Health Service controls). Expand
[Oral and vaginal Candida colonization under the influence of hormonal contraception (author's transl)].
TLDR
In the oral cavity, candida colonization could be detected more frequently than in the vagina, and the influence of oral contraceptives could not be demonstrated in the cross-sectional study. Expand

TLDR
No statistical difference was found between recurrent vulvovaginitis and the use of oral contraceptives, oral sex, tight fitting clothing and synthetic underwear, and FSWs have the same prevalence of candidiasis as other groups of women described in published literature. Expand
