Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis is a immuno deficiency disorder primarily due to T cell dysfunction characterized by persistent candidal infection of mucous membrane, skin, scalp and nails. Chronic mucous membrane candidiasis has an onset in infancy or childhood; the primary affected site is the oral cavity; however, lesions may occur on trunk, hands, feet and scalp. This paper describes a 12-year-old girl with candidial infection of the oral mucosa and extra oral involvement of fingers, nails, toes and intertragus area.
