Abstract
Candida albicans frequently inhabits the gastrointestinal tract of humans and this can lead to gastrointestinal candidiasis. Candida albicans infection of the gastrointestinal tract in normal or immunocompromised patients invariably involves the esophagus, with the typical finding of mucosal plaques. In contrast, gastric candidiasis is an uncommon phenomenon that usually occurs in immunocompromised hosts, andonly such eight cases have currently been documented in Korea. We report here on an additional case of gastric candidiasis in a 39-year old woman who had undergone craniotomy and chemotherapy for glioblastoma, and we review the medical literature related to this condition.
