OBJECTIVE Mucosal surfaces are the primary oral reservoirs of Candida species, but these species can also be found in subgingival biofilm. The present study investigated the genetic diversity and production of exoenzymes of C. albicans and C. dubliniensis isolated from the oral cavity of systemically healthy patients with periodontitis. DESIGN Fifty-three(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to investigate the oral colonization profile of Candida albicans strains isolated from diabetic patients and their non-diabetic consorts. In addition hydrolytic enzyme activity of these isolates was analysed. METHODS The genetic diversity of C. albicans oral isolates from 52 couples was established using isoenzyme(More)
UNLABELLED Cleft lip and palate (CL/P) are the most common congenital anomalies of the craniofacial region. AIM to evaluate the surgical techniques used in CL/P treatment in a craniofacial deformities ward, in Minas Gerais. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this retrospective study, carried out between 2002 and 2007, we studied 109 individuals with non-syndromic(More)
UNLABELLED Cleft lip and palate (CL/P) are the most common congenital craniofacial anomalies. AIM To evaluate environmental risk factors for non-syndromic CL/P in a reference care center in Minas Gerais. MATERIALS AND METHODS we carried out a case-controlled study, assessing 100 children with clefts and 100 children without clinical alterations. The(More)
Hemifacial hyperplasia is a developmental disorder characterized by marked unilateral facial asymmetry. It involves the hard and soft tissues of the face. The cause is unknown, although several predisposing factors have been described. A case report of an 8-year-old boy with hemifacial hyperplasia is presented to highlight the clinical and imaging findings.
The genetic diversity of C. albicans oral isolates from 75 healthy schoolchildren from eight schools located in different geographic areas of Piracicaba city, São Paulo state, Brazil, was established using isoenzymes marker (Multilocus Enzyme Electrophoresis - MLEE) and cluster analysis. Patterns of monoclonal and polyclonal oral colonization by C. albicans(More)
UNLABELLED Cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) are the most common congenital anomalies of the face. CL/P are non-syndromic (CL/PNS) in about 70% of subjects. AIM To describe clinical cases of non-syndromic CL/P (CL/PNS) associated with consanguinity, diagnosed at a reference hospital in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and to correlate these alterations with possible(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the biopsychosocial profile of patients with anophthalmia, with emphasis on the psychological and functional impact of eye loss and the social reintegration of this population. METHODS Prospective analyses of 84 patients (50 males and 34 females), rehabilitated or in the rehabilitation process with ocular prostheses were interviewed by(More)
