Synopsis

Candidiasis refers to a fungal infection caused by the yeast Candida albicans. Other species of Candida are occasionally causative. When in the male genital area, it might have been acquired through intercourse with an infected partner. It may also arise idiopathically. Predisposing factors include a history of diabetes mellitus, other forms of immunosuppression (including steroid use), obesity, pre-existing intrinsic skin disease, or recent treatment with antibiotics.

Candidiasis presents clinically as small erythematous erosions and pustules with associated itching and burning. In its mildest form, the condition may be intermittent and transient. Candida most often infects warm, moist, occluded areas, and the proximal shaft of the penis, the scrotum, and the crural folds are frequently involved. Candidal balanitis is a fungal infection of the glans penis. It occurs more frequently in the uncircumcised male.
