Abstract
Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis is a rare disorder that is characterised by chronic or recurrent superficial candida infection of skin, nails, and mucous membranes. We describe such a case in a young boy who failed to respond to conventional therapy. It highlights the important role of the dental team in assessment, treatment, and onwards referral.
