The prevalence of Candida albicans was quantitatively compared in 74 surgical patients during and after total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Suppression of oral food intake is probably responsible for the decrease of the C. albicans population in the mouth. On the contrary anal swabs were more often positive for C. albicans during TPN. This may be due to local conditions as was observed in a group of patients who were not given TPN but were also immobilized for a long period.
