Genotypic profiles and virulence attributes of Candida albicans isolates from patients with oral lichen planus.


Candida albicans carriage has been found to be increased in patients with oral lichen planus. In the present work we have investigated the genotypic profiles of 112 C. albicans strains isolated from patients with erosive or nonerosive OLP, and from healthy controls. The virulence attributes of the isolated strains were compared to elucidate the pathogenetic… (More)
