Mouth swabs from 1,288 individuals in the North Mara region of Tanzania were cultured for yeasts. Subjects were randomly selected from rural and urban areas, and a group of food handlers were also studied. Yeasts were cultured from 407 (31.6%) and Candida albicans from 141 (10.9%) subjects. A wide variety of other yeast species were also identified.
