Response from Dr. Holodniy

Candida infections are very common in AIDS patients. Systemic or disseminated infections throughout the body are less common and do occur with candida and other yeast or fungus infections. In almost all cases these can be diagnosed with blood culture, imaging studies, or biospy.
