Abstract

A case of oral erosive candidosis due to Candida albicans in a 64-year-old female patient, who had undergone kidney transplant 20 days earlier, is reported. Concomitant herpes infection was excluded. The patient achieved clinical and mycological recovery after treatment with topical and systemic antimycotics (200 mg fluconazole per day) for 50 days. The case is reported because of the erosive ulcerating aspect and extent of the lesions, usually only reported in immunodepressed subjects, especially those with neutropenia or AIDS
