Systemic candidiasis is often characterized by markedly
elevated levels of IgG, IgA, and IgM recognizing Candida.
However, interpretation of Candida antibody levels
is complicated by detection of antibodies in 20-30% of healthy
individuals, and blunted antibody responses in immuno-
compromised patients at risk for systemic candidiasis. Candida
antibody results should be considered within the context of clinical
findings and results from other relevant laboratory tests, such as
Candida antigen detection and/or culture.
