Detection by light microscopy of Candida in thin sections of bladder stone.

Author information

Department of Urology, Shiga University of Medical Sciences, Japan.


We detected fungi morphologically resembling Candida albicans in an infected bladder stone by light microscopy of thin sections. The fungi were found in the layers precipitated with oxalate crystals and were invading the interstices surrounded with apatite or struvite crystals as in tissue infection. This presumably represents a superimposed infection due to changes in flora following treatment with antibiotics.
