Candida vaginitis (CV) ranks as the second most common cause of vaginal infection. Approximately 75% of women are estimated to have at least one episode of this infection during their reproductive life. About 90% of the infections are caused by Candida albicans species, with the remainder being non-albicans species, mainly C. glabrata. Of the infected women, 40-50% will experience recurrence. Only a small subpopulation will suffer chronic recurrence. It can be a normal asymptomatic colonisation in the vagina.
