Candida is a ubiquitous fungus and can lead to various forms of infections like superficial, subcutaneous and systemic-to-invasive infections. Lower gastrointestinal tract infections caused by Candida species are rarely reported and Candida albicans is the most common species that has been identified. Here, we report a rare case of acute intestinal obstruction in a 58-year-old male patient where bile secretions yielded growth of Candida tropicalis.
