The purpose of this study has been to assess the prevalence of denture stomatitis and candida infection in an elderly Danish population. Ten percent of the population above the age of 65 in a Danish community was selected randomly. The study group consisted of 465 persons wearing a removable maxillary denture, who were examined in their homes. Yeasts were(More)
This study comprised 100 healthy dentate adults and 53 patients with either chronic erythematous oral candidosis or oral leukoplakic lesions. The presence of yeasts was determined by microscopical examination of PAS-stained smears and by culture. Biopsy material was obtained from all lesions. The isolated yeasts were identified to species level. Strain(More)
Yeasts occur commonly in the oral cavity in healthy individuals. The prevalent species is Candida albicans (about 60-70% of all isolates). C. glabrata and C. tropicalis come next, followed by other Candida species and genera (Rhodotorula, Saccharomyces, etc.) which are all of rare occurrence and transient. The yeast flora increases in many patient groups,(More)
BACKGROUND Familial hypercholesterolemia is a human monogenic disease caused by population-specific mutations in the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor gene. Despite thirteen different mutations of the LDL receptor gene were reported from Russia prior to 2003, the whole spectrum of disease-causing gene alterations in this country is poorly known and(More)
Conventional oral specimens for recovery of yeasts are swabs and smears. Oral rinses and imprint/impression cultures can also be used. Yeasts grow well at room temperature and may multiply in specimens under transport. Direct smears examined for blastospores, hyphae, and inflammatory cells ensure rapid presumptive diagnosis. Fungal identification requires(More)
BACKGROUND Familial Hypercholesterolemia is a common autosomal dominantly inherited disease that is most frequently caused by mutations in the gene encoding the receptor for low density lipoproteins (LDLR). Deletions and other major structural rearrangements of the LDLR gene account for approximately 5% of the mutations in many populations. METHODS Five(More)
A newly described medium with esculin for identification of Cryptococcus neoformans was compared with Staib's Guizotia abyssinica extract-creatinine medium (GAEC) with and without diphenyl (DF). Twenty-seven samples of pigeon manure were examined. Cr. neoformans was found in 6 samples (22%) on GAEC plates (-DF); ESC medium (-DF) and malt extract agar(More)
