Candida species are the most common fungal pathogens isolated from the oral cavity. Their oral existence both as a commensal and an opportunist pathogen has intrigued clinicians and scientists for many decades, and recent investigations have revealed many attributes of this fungus contributing to its pathogenicity. In addition, the advent of the human immunodeficiency virus infection and AIDS has resulted in a resurgence of oral Candida infections. Clinicians are witnessing not only classic… Expand
Host factors affecting oral candidiasis
TLDR
The local, systemic and iatrogenic factors affecting oral candidiasis are described, which are of particular importance among debilitated and immunocompromised patients. Expand
Clinical Appearance of Oral Candida Infection and Therapeutic Strategies
TLDR
The treatment after confirmation of the diagnosis of oral candida infections should include recognizing and eliminating the underlying causes such as ill-fitting oral appliances, history of medications, immunological and endocrine disorders, nutritional deficiency states and prolonged hospitalization. Expand
Microbial interactions and immunity response in oral Candida species.
TLDR
This review performed a literature search in PubMed and WoS, in order to examine and analyze common oral Candida spp..-bacteria/Candida-Candida interactions and the host immunity response in oral candidiasis. Expand
Conventional and Recent Diagnostic Aids in oral Candidal Infections: A Brief overview
TLDR
D diagnosis of candidal lesions is essentially based on clinical manifestations and supplemented by smear and culture, and species differentiation can be done by morphological features such as germ tubes and chlamydospores and a variety of biochemical techniques. Expand

TLDR
An overview of clinical manifestations of oral candidoses and recent advances in antimycotic therapy is given, together with newer concepts, such as the post-antifungal effect (PAFE) and its possible therapeutic implications. Expand
Candidiasis and other fungal diseases of the mouth
TLDR
The first part of this review attempts to provide an overview of clinical variants of oral candidiasis and current therapeutic techniques, while the latter part outlines the rare oral mycoses and their management. Expand
Oral mucosal fungal infections.

ANTIFUNGALS AND THEIR ROLE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ORAL MYCOSES: A REVIEW
TLDR
Adverse effects like gastrointestinal distress, nausea, vomiting, hepatotoxicity and renal toxicity as well as the patient's underlying systemic problem have to be borne in mind before deciding the course of antifungals to be given. Expand

TLDR
In patients who are compromised immunologically and undergoing prolonged antimicrobic therapy, C. albicans can reach high numbers in the GI tract and, subsequently, pass through the intestinal mucosa to initiate systemic infection by the hematogenous route. Expand

TLDR
Mycoses of the mouth and nearby areas can be caused by both yeasts and filamentous fungi andYeasts that are part of the normal microbial flora of man, among them especially Candida species, are the most frequent causative agents. Expand
