Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis is a rare entity characterized by isolated defective immunity against candida infection. It manifests with resistant and relapsing superficial candida infection affecting skin, hair, nails, and mucosae. Although serious invasive disease is uncommon, this condition produces considerable morbidity in the affected. Long-term antifungal treatment is the preferred option. We report a 3½-year-old female child who presented with chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis and who showed a gradual response to long-term treatment with itraconazole.
