It appears frequently in women taking antibiotics, women with diabetes or during pregnancy. Sometimes asymptomatic, more frequently responsible for leucorrhea associated with itching.
In smears, conidia (yeasts) and pseudohyphae are found, not always easy to detect.
Some women may have yeasts without symptomatology.
