In a newborn with candidemia, two retinal lesions were seen without external inflammatory signs or reaction in the anterior chamber or vitreous. However, handheld spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (HH SD-OCT) images show that one of the retinal lesions had a “firework display” projecting to the vitreous that was not identified in indirect ophthalmoscopy. This finding suggested aCandida endophthalmitis. HH SD-OCT findings allowed us to make an accurate diagnosis and, therefore, modified the decision-making process in the treatment of the pathology.Case Rep Ophthalmol 2018;9:439 –443

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide information about the emergence of fluconazole resistance inCandida albicans isolated from vaginal discharge, in a global context, and to update the in vitro susceptibility profile of this species from Argentina.Recent FindingsVulvovaginal candidiasis is the second most common vaginal infection after vaginal bacteriosis.C. albicans remains the prevalent etiological yeast species, and despite antifungal treatment, the rate of recurrence remains high, which may be associated to antifungal resistance.SummaryData here presented were obtained from the study ofC. albicans strains isolated from...

Host injury triggers feedback mechanisms that limit tissue damage. Conventional type 1 dendritic cells (cDC1s) express dendritic cell natural killer lectin group receptor-1 (DNGR-1), encoded by the gene Clec9a, which senses tissue damage and favors cross-presentation of dead-cell material to CD8+ T cells. Here we find that DNGR-1 additionally reduces host-damaging inflammatory responses induced by sterile and infectious tissue injury in mice. DNGR-1 deficiency leads to exacerbated caerulein-induced necrotizing pancreatitis and increased pathology during systemic Candida albicans infection without affecting fungal burden. T...

(Natural News) Caprylic acid, a natural compound found in abundance in coconut oil, has been observed to penetrate and eradicate persistent Candida biofilms. A recent peer-reviewed study published in Frontiers of Microbiology concluded that a combination of caprylic acid and pectic acid (a water-soluble fiber found in most fruits and vegetables) completely eliminated pathogenic biofilms...

Authors: McCarthy MW, Walsh TJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: The presence of Candida species in the blood is known as candidemia and may constitute a medical emergency for patients with cancer. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment of this fungal infection, mortality remains unacceptably high. Areas covered: This paper reviews recent advances in molecular diagnostics to detect species of Candida as well as novel antifungal agents that have been developed to address candidiasis. We also review prophylaxis strategies to prevent candidiasis in high-risk cancer patients. Expert commentary: We draw from our own experienc...
