A cohort of 69 children born to HIV-1 positive women was studied to evaluate types, prevalences and relationships to clinical stages of HIV-1-related oral lesions. In addition, relationships among C. albicans biotypes, clinical features of oral candidiasis and HIV-1 disease were investigated. C. albicans biotypes did not correlate with clinical features of oral lesions, disease stages and CD4+ lymphocyte count. Of 8 patients with recurrent oral candidiasis, 4 changed clinical features and 5 changed biotype. Our study pointed out the high frequency (28.9%) of oral lesions, especially caused by fungi and the importance of the examination of the oral cavity in children born to HIV-1 positive women.

Abstract

A cohort of 69 children born to HIV-1 positive women was studied to evaluate types, prevalences and relationships to clinical stages of HIV-1-related oral lesions. In addition, relationships among C. albicans biotypes, clinical features of oral candidiasis and HIV-1 disease were investigated. C. albicans biotypes did not correlate with clinical features of oral lesions, disease stages and CD4+ lymphocyte count. Of 8 patients with recurrent oral candidiasis, 4 changed clinical features and 5 changed biotype. Our study pointed out the high frequency (28.9%) of oral lesions, especially caused by fungi and the importance of the examination of the oral cavity in children born to HIV-1 positive women.
