Anyone with any thoughts on this one:  28 year old woman, good health.  
Awakens one morning after feeling very run down with a white, fungus like 
patch on the center of her tongue. Unlike most cases of thrush, it only 
appears in this one spot (very localized).  It remains for 6 weeks and 
then disappears on its own.  Diagnosis is Median Rhomoidal Glossitis, a 
secondary condition to Chronic Candidiasis.  Her blood tests have not 
disclosed anything abnormal.  What further tests should be run?  Any 
possible diagnosis?  What has caused her immune suppression?
