Two cases of candidiasis occurred in the stomach. The first is a case of disseminated candidiasis with stomach wall involvement. The patient had Hodgkin's disease and responded to chemotherapy and amphotericin B. The second is a case of superficial invasion of Candida in a stitch ulcer. Systemic and local factors influence growth of Candida in the stomach.
