Abstract

Candidal infection has been associated extensively with serious infections. Its role in genital tract infections has consisted largely of vulvovaginitis, with serious upper genital tract infection a rarity. A 47- year-old woman with an intrauterine device had Candida glabrata in a large tuboovarian abscess and recovered only after removal of the abscess and treatment with amphotericin B.
