  • A condition in which candida albicans, a type of yeast, grows out of control in moist skin areas of the body. It is usually a result of a weakened immune system, but can be a side effect of chemotherapy or treatment with antibiotics. Thrush usually affects the mouth (oral thrush); however, rarely, it spreads throughout the entire body. Also called candidiasis or candidosis.
  • Infection of the mucous membranes of the mouth by a fungus of the genus candida. (Dorland, 27th ed)
