Abstract

Candida albicans has been recognized as the predominant infecting organism in oropharyngeal candidiasis. Yeasts other than C. albicans are commonly recognized as colonizing the oral cavity but have not been thought to be a significant cause of disease. This review will describe the emergence of yeasts other than C. albicans as causative pathogens in oropharyngeal candidiasis both as co-infecting organisms with C. albicans and as sole pathogens themselves. Diagnosis and treatment of these emerging infections will also be discussed.
