Candida albicans is a dimorphic fungus belonging to the Phylum Ascomycota, that presents pseudohyphae, hyphae and subspheric blastoconidia (3-8 x 2-7 μm). Associated to warmblooded animals, it is a saprobe of the digestive and respiratory tracts and the vagina of humans. It may infect skin, nails and mucous membranes, but the disseminated presentation that develops in immunocompromised patients is the most serious complication of the disease.
