Manifestations of Candida mycoses
Systemic Candida infections

Systemic Candida infections: A higher risk for invasive candidosis is to be found in patients in intensive care units, those with severely debilitated immune systems or endocrinopathies. The entry points for an invasive infection are existing Candida colonisations, e.g. on the skin, the oropharynx or the gastrointestinal tract.

In the case of limited immune competence, a weakening of the intestinal mucosal barrier (leaky gut) can help simplify the transfer of Candida antigens and their metabolic products into the blood circulation.

Haematogenic dispersal may lead to the development of sepsis and micro-abscesses with subsequent organ damage.

Cause of recurrent extra-intestinal yeast infections: the intestine as a reservoir for pathogens

The gastrointestinal tract acts as a reservoir for recurrent yeast infections. They are able to spread via the mouth as the gateway to infection throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract. The spread is through smear infections in the genital area and over the body’s entire surface. As a consequence, relapsing or chronic vaginal mycoses infections and genitourinary tract mycoses are able to occur, or in the case of children recurrent diaper dermatitis can arise. The vicious circle of infection and re-infection closes when the pathogens return to the mouth again. Only by a consequential clean-up of the entire gastrointestinal tract is it possible to effectively interrupt this cycle.
