Male genital candidiasis - Anogenital in
Candida can infect the proximal shaft, scrotum, and crural folds. Candidal balanitis is an infection of the glans penis. It occurs more frequently in uncircumcised males.
In its mildest form, the condition may be intermittent and transient.
Genital or crural candidiasis that is recurrent or persistent and that occurs in concert with more widespread candidal infections of the mucous membranes, skin, and nails may be seen in chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMCC). CMCC may present with candidal diaper dermatitis in infancy.
