Definition

Systemic Fungal infection (mycosis). Candida albicans: amounts to approx. 2/3 of the fungal infections in Norway. Rheumatic symptoms are not to be expected, and usually the infection is harmless. However, with a weakened immune system, as with immunosuppressive treatment of rheumatic diseases, Candida can lead to complications.
