Título Muco-cutaneous candidosis and occupational exposure to enzymes - A case report
Título original Candidosi mucocutanea nella esposizione ad agenti biologici - Un caso clinico [en italiano]
Información bibliográfica May-June 1993, Vol.84, No.3, p.243-248. 25 réf.
Resumen Candida albicans, a common yeast in the environment, has properties allowing it to colonize and invade host tissues, often resisting eradication. Acid proteinase is the virulence factor. Bacterial proteinases are widely used in the detergent industry and the role of occupational exposure to enzymes in the development of muco-cutaneous candidosis warrants investigation. A case of candidosis is reported in a worker employed in a detergent factory in whom there was no evidence of any kind of immuno-suppression. The relationship between occupational exposure and illness is analyzed.
