Abstract provided by Publisher
 
We report a case of a 34 year old women with spondylodiscitis due to Candida albicans infection. One and a half year earlier a ulcerative colitis she was diagnosed and treated with sulfasalazine, short course of glucocorticosteroids and with azathioprine. The diagnosis of fungal spondylodiscitis was made by culture of material collected from involved part of vertebral column during the surgery. Initially the patient was treated with fluconazole intravenously for 20 days, then the treatment was continued orally for one year. During the treatment all complaints disappeared and reduction of the laboratory acute phase indices was observed. Follow-up magnetic resonance’s have shown gradual improvement. To our knowledge no similar case has been reported in the Polish literature before.
