We report on two children affected by chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis involving the mouth and all the nails who were successfully treated with itraconazole at 200 mg/day for 2 months. This therapy produced a rapid cure of both candidal nail and mouth infections. The drug was very well tolerated, and routine laboratory monitoring during treatment did not reveal any abnormalities.
