英文摘要:

OBJECTIVES: To compare the prevalence of asymptomatic oral candidal carriage in healthy volunteers with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients in China, as well as to investigate the relationship between CD4(+) lymphocyte count and oral candidal colonization or oral candidiasis.

METHODS: Oral candidal carriage and oral candidiasis were investigated in 101 patients with HIV-infection seen at Youan Hospital, Beijing, China. Two hundred and seventeen healthy volunteers were involved as a control. Culture from saliva was used to test for the presence of oral Candida. CD4(+) lymphocyte count was measured by flow cytometry. All data were analyzed statistically by SAS.

RESULTS: Asymptomatic oral candidal carriage rate (28.6%) in HIV-positive group was similar to that in the healthy group (18.0%; P = 0.07). No significant difference in CD4(+) lymphocyte count was found between oral Candida carriers and non-carriers among HIV-positive subjects (P = 0.89). However, the frequency of oral candidiasis increased with the decrease in CD4(+) lymphocyte count (P < 0.0001), and pseudomembranous candidiasis was predominant in HIV-positive patients with CD4(+) < 200 cells mu l(-1) (66.7%).

CONCLUSIONS: In HIV-positive subjects, asymptomatic oral candidal colonization is not related to CD4(+) lymphocyte count of blood, and the carriage rate is similar to that in the healthy population. Oral candidiasis is more likely to be observed in HIV-positive patients who have a low CD4(+) lymphocyte count.
