candidiasis (KAN-dih-DY-uh-sis)

A condition in which Candida albicans, a type of yeast, grows out of control in moist skin
areas of the body. It is usually a result of a weakened immune system, but can be a side effect
of chemotherapy or treatment with antibiotics. Candidiasis usually affects the mouth (oral
candidiasis); however, rarely, it spreads throughout the entire body. Also called candidosis and
thrush.
