Author information

Department of Urology, University Hospital of Iráklion, Crete, Greece.


We studied gastrointestinal (GI) colonization by Candida albicans in patients receiving oral norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin or ofloxacin as monotherapy for urinary tract infections. Quantitative stool cultures for C. albicans were performed before, at the end and 1 week after the end of treatment. All 3 quinolones increased GI colonization by C. albicans. Ciprofloxacin caused the highest increase, which was not statistically significant.
