Oral candidiasis is a common opportunistic infection of the oral cavity caused by an overgrowth of Candida species, the commonest being Candida albicans. The incidence varies depending on age and certain predisposing factors. There are three broad groupings consisting of acute candidiasis, chronic candidiasis, and angular cheilitis. Risk factors include impaired salivary gland function, drugs, dentures, high carbohydrate diet, and extremes of life, smoking, diabetes mellitus, Cushing's syndrome… 
Differential diagnosis and therapeutic characteristics of oral candidiasis
TLDR
Oral candidiasis is a common opportunistic infection in the oral cavity and is caused by abnormal multiplication of Candida species (Candida albicans), and should be distinguished from reticular form of lichen planus, leukoplakia, chemical damage, mechanical damage and others.

TLDR
Information is reviewed on diagnosis and therapeutic management of aspergillosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, mucormycosis; and geotrichosis that are associated with greater discomfort and are sometimes destruction of tissues.

TLDR
Oral candidosis is the most common fungal infection that frequently occurs in patients debilitated by other diseases or conditions and its pathophysiology and best practice for diagnosis, practical classification, and successful management are described.
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.
Oral candidosis and the therapeutic use of antifungal agents in dentistry.
TLDR
Proposed classification for the presentation of oral candidosis is outlined as are examples of these topical infections, such as erythematous, pseudomembranous and hyperplastic candidosis, as well as angular chelitis and median rhomboid glossitis.

FUNGAL INFECTIONS OF THE ORAL CAVITY
TLDR
Fungi, both yeasts and filamentous types, can cause infection of different sites in the oral cavity like buccal mucosa, gingiva and tongue and usually respond quite favourably to correct and timely antifungal treatment.

Etiology, pathogenesis, therapy, and prophylaxis of oral yeast infections.
TLDR
Colonization of the fitting denture surface by Candida should be controlled by, for example, using a chlorhexidine solution as a denture disinfectant, however, recurrences are frequent if the local or the systemic predisposing conditions are not...

TLDR
Local oral factors in host defense include the epithelial barrier, flow or saliva, microbial interactions, antimicrobial constituents of saliva, lysozyme, lactoferrin, the lactoperoxidase system, levels of iron, and salivary glycoproteins.

TLDR
The conventional treatment against Candida albicans infections is discussed and a more restrictive use of combinations of drugs against oral candidiasis is suggested.

TLDR
In cancer patients, candidiasis can range from asymptomatic oral thrush to life-threatening candidemia, and therapeutic and preventive approaches with newer agents such as flucytosine and fluconazole may improve prognosis.
