Abstract

Candidal infections of the urinary tract are increasing, mainly due to the awareness of the condition, prolonged use and misuse of antibiotics and increased longevity of life. Quite often, candidal infection of the urinary is ignored as contaminant. Experience with this infection on the urinary tract is described. It can be concluded that: urinary candidiasis is a relatively rare entity with 0.7% occurrence in the present series. Awareness of the condition difinitely improves chance of detection. Candida in the urine need not be considered as a serious disease. Alkalinization of urine helps to clear candida from the urine. Antibiotics, if needed, can be given to patients with candidiasis.
