JULIAN-GONZALEZ, Rolando Elías; VALDEBRAN-CANALES, Manuel Augusto  and  GUIDOS-MORALES, Héctor Eduardo. Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.108, n.2. ISSN 0325-0075.

Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis is a primary immunodeficiency characterized by persistent or recurrent candidal infections of the skin, nails and/or mucosal tissues. CMC can be associated with endocrinopathies such as hypoparathyroidism, Addison's disease, hypothyroidism, type 1 diabetes mellitus or hypogonadism. Other associated conditions include autoimmune diseases such as autoimmune gastritis and autoimmune hepatitis. We report a patient with CMC and decreased T cell, natural killer cells without other associated condition.

Keywords : Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis; Primary immunodeficiency; Endocrinopathies; Cell-mediated immunity.
