Yongxuan Hu, Yanqing Hu, Yan Lu, Shiyun Huang, Kangxing Liu, Xue Han, Zuhao Mao, Zhong Wu, Xianyi Zhou
Candida albicans is the most common pathogen that causes balanoposthitis. It often causes recurrence of symptoms probably due to its antifungal resistance. A significant number of balanitis Candida albicans isolates are resistant to azole and terbinafine antifungal agents in vitro. However, balanoposthitis caused by fluconazole- and terbinafine-resistant Candida albicans has rarely been reported. Here, we describe a case of a recurrent penile infection caused by fluconazole- and terbinafine-resistant Candida albicans, as well as the treatments administered to this patient...

One hundred fifty seven men with candidal balanitis were entered in a randomised, open-label parallel-group multicentre study comparing efficacy and safety of a single oral 150-mg fluconazole-dose with clotrimazole applied topically twice daily for 7 days. Of 64 fluconazole and 68 clotrimazole treated patients who were evaluable at short term follow up, 92% and 91% respectively were clinically cured or improved. Candida albicans was eradicated in 78% and 83% of patients respectively. Median time to relief of erythema was 6 days for fluconazole and 7 days for clotrimazole...

The effect of using a single dose of 10% clotrimazole cream was compared with that of using a twice-daily application of 2% clotrimazole cream for 3 days in 111 women with mycologically proven vaginal candidosis. The results, analyzed for 55 patients in each group, showed that 1 week after starting treatment, negative cultures were recorded for 91% of the patients who received single-dose therapy and 96% of patients treated with the 3-day regimen. Five weeks after treatment started, the figures were 84% and 81%, respectively, showing that both regimens were equally effective...

Clotrimazole 1% (Canesten) cream was used in a trial comprising 138 men with candidal balanitis. Eighty-six (91%) out of 94 men were asymptomatic after seven days and 57 (98%) of 58 men were asymptomatic after three weeks' treatment. After seven days, Candida albicans could no longer be cultured from 86 (90%) of 96 men, nor from 55 (95%) of 58 men three weeks after treatment. Microscopical examination gave varying results. Fifteen (10.9%) of 138 men were found to have diabetes mellitus; this group was significantly older than the non-diabetics...
