candidiasis
Explanation:
Candida species are ubiquitous fungi found throughout the world as normal body flora. Unfortunately, candidiasis is also the most common mycotic infection, causing a variety of diseases. Candidiasis can range from superficial disorders such as diaper rash to invasive, rapidly fatal infections in immunocompromised hosts.
Candidiasis affects a wide variety of organ systems. In immunocompetent persons, any warm, moist part of the body exposed to the environment is susceptible to infection. Common examples of this are vaginitis; vulvar rash; oral thrush; conjunctivitis; endophthalmitis; diaper rash; and infections of the nail, rectum, and other skin folds. In immunocompromised patients, systemic illnesses such as myocarditis, hepatosplenic abscess, pulmonary infection, CNS infection, and chronic disease may occur.
