Candida spp were isolated from 18 out of 38 (47,4 %) children under five years with acute diarrhoea and from 10 out of35 (28,6%) children under five years without diarrhoea. Statistical tests showed no difference between the presence of Candida species and the occurence of diarrhoea of the two groups of children (p >0,05). Mycelia were isolated from one diarrhoeal patient (1/387 or 2,63%). From the diarrhoeal patients, the Candida species found, were Candida albicans 61,1% (11/18), Candida parapsilosis 5,6% (1/18), Candida pseudotropicalis 22,2%(4/18), and Candida tropicalis 11,1 %(2/18). While from the non diarrhoeal patients 30% (3/10) were Candida Albicans, 20% (2/10) were Can­dida pseudotropicalis, and 50%(5/10) were Candida tropicalis. Bacterial identification of rectal swabs from diarrhoeal patients showed that 2,63% (1/38) had Vibrio Cholera 2,63% had Shigella, 94,7% (36/38) had E. coli, 21,1% (8/38) had Proteus sp, 7,9% (3/38) had Providentia, and 2,6 % (1/38) had Arizona. The clinical symptoms of the diarrhoeal patients were 97,4% had watery diarrhoea, 63,2% de­fecated more than 10 times, and 78,9% had vomiting.
