Autosomal dominant familial chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis associated with acne rosacea.

Ann Acad Med Singapore. 2005 Oct;34(9):571-4

Authors: Ee HL, Tan HH, Ng SK

INTRODUCTION: Autosomal dominant chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC) without endocrinopathy (OMIM 114580) is a well-described entity. The associations recorded with this disorder to date are intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) deficiency and hyper-immunoglobulin E syndrome. CLINICAL PICTURE: We report a new association in a family (mother and nonidentical twin sons) where acne rosacea is a prominent feature together with CMC. In addition, antibodies to thyroid microsomal and antiparietal cell were also isolated. The autoantibodies might be associated with a current "latent" endocrinopathy in particular autoimmune thyroiditis. TREATMENT: The patient was treated with intermittent pulses of itraconazole for the candidiasis and doxycycline initially before being substituted with isotretinoin 6 months later for the rosacea. OUTCOME: The patient's candidiasis responded well and has been in remission for 3 months while his rosacea continues to improve.
