Abstract

Cutaneous candidiasis is a common skin infection caused by the Candida species, especially in intertriginous areas, and neutrophils usually infiltrate histopathologically. We describe a case of secondary cutaneous candidiasis which spread extensively to the trunk and extremities and showed marked dermal eosinophilia. This case and a similar reported case suggest that Candida can sometimes cause cutaneous inflammation predominantly composed of eosinophils.
