Synonym: Monilia albicans.
Candida albicans is commonly found as an endogenous inhabitant of the alimentary tract and the mucocutaneous regions of the body, “where it lives in a delicate competitive balance with bacteria and other microflora of the digestive tract” [Hudler]. It particularly exists as normal flora in the throat, vulvovaginal area, lower intestinal tract, and skin. Endogenous organism in humans, animals, and birds; has been isolated from the faeces of animals [especially swine]. Feeds in the bowel on sugars, simple carbohydrates and fermented products like alcohol and cheese. Found worldwide on fruits and vegetables. Found in polluted fresh and marine waters. Colonies mature in 2-3 days. • An important characteristic is adhesiveness. This organism remains firmly attached to mucous membranes.
