Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider the following:

  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Contact dermatitis with or without colonization
  • Pseudomonas nailbed infection
  • Inverse psoriasis
  • Radiation dermatitis
  • Trichomonas infection

Duong et al [39] noted 2 cases of extensive cutaneous candidiasis complicating cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Be aware that cutaneous T-cell lymphoma may underlie extensive candidiasis.
