Sources of Invasive Candidiasis

Candida yeasts normally live in and on the body without causing any symptoms. In people at risk, invasive candidiasis may occur when a person’s own Candida yeasts enter the bloodstream. This can also happen if medical equipment or devices, particularly intravenous (IV) catheters, become contaminated with Candida. In either case, the infection may spread through the bloodstream and infect various organs.
