Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis with Candida glabrata – a management conundrum
Taghinejadi N., Andersson MI., Lord E.
High rates of azole-resistance and limited availability of pharmacological agents within the UK can make recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC) with Candida glabrata a challenging infection to treat. In this report, we describe our experience in managing C. glabrata RVVC and present the case of a patient with poor response to therapy and a protracted treatment course, spanning almost 4 years. We also highlight the need for evidence-based management protocols that consider the national availability of alternative treatments.
