Overview

Objective:
A review of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis and the possibility of its treatment.

Subject:
Original study.

Setting:
Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Medical Faculty Hradec Králové, Charles University, Prague.

Department of Clinical Microbiology, Medical Faculty Hradec Králové, Charles University, Prague.

Department of Biological and Medical Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy Hradec Králové, Charles University, Prague.

Department of Clinical Imunology and Allergology, Medical Faculty Hradec Králové, Charles University, Prague.

Department of Psychiatry, Medical Faculty Olomouc, Palacky University, Olomouc.

Methods:
Analysis and discussion focused especially on our results and experience in a long time follow-up of patients with confirmed recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis.

Conclusion:
Owing to the multifactorial character of etiopathogenesis, the management of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis would be taken into consideration the complexity of the disease, not only the treatment of individual episodes with antimycotics.

Key words:
yeast, Candida albicans, recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis, treatment
