For instance, it can cause diseases in the circulation system or inner organs like the kidney, heart, or cerebrum.

Intrusive candidiasis is a disease brought about by a yeast (a kind of organism) called Candida. In contrast to Candida contaminations in the mouth and throat (likewise called "thrush") or vaginal "yeast diseases," obtrusive candidiasis is a serious contamination that can influence the blood, heart, mind, eyes, bones, and different pieces of the body. Candidemia, a circulation system contamination with Candida, is a typical disease in hospitalized patients.

• Individuals who are pregnant.
• Children and babies.
• Individuals who wear false teeth.
• Hospitalized people.
