Abstract

is considered the most important species able to cause oral infections in denture wearers. In recent years, has emerged as a pathogenic yeast in humans. The close phenotypic similarities of and have led to the misidentification of these species. In this work, our aim was to verify through PCR the presence of in palate and maxillary denture samples from 112 denture wearers presenting with or without denture-related stomatitis (DRS). was isolated at low rates from both palate (5.3 % and 10.7 %) and maxillary denture (5.3 % and 8.9 %) samples from wearers regardless of the presence of the disease. However, when was detected in individuals with DRS, it was always associated with . In addition, our results showed that was the most commonly identified candidal species in maxillary denture and hard palate samples from DRS patients (78.5 % and 89.2 %, respectively) as well as from controls (31.2 % and 28.5 %, respectively). In conclusion, was detected in the oral environment of denture wearers. The association of with occurred in approximately 10 % of the DRS cases.
