Abstract

Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OC) is a problem that develops in virtually every patient with AIDS. Recurrent OC can cause pain and discomfort, resulting in loss of appetite. Fluconazole is an effective treatment for OC, but most of the literature describes patients who were infected with a single fungal species, usually Candida albicans. Mixed fungal infection in AIDS patients with OC is rarely reported but has been associated with resistance to fluconazole. The investigators report their findings regarding the effect of mixed infection on the outcome of fluconazole therapy for OC.
