Case report. Folliculitis barbae caused by Candida albicans.


Folliculitis barbae candidomycetica is a very rare disease and in the scientific literature this manifestation of candidosis is rarely described. In most cases, a connection with predisposing factors is suspected, although in the cases cited this connection was not frequently proved. Furthermore, in our patient who was suffering from a folliculitis candidomycetica no predisposing factors or illnesses were apparent. For this reason, the importance of such aetiological factors of Candida folliculitis must be critically discussed. Effective drugs for use in treatment are fluconazole, itraconazole and ketoconazole.
