Abstract

Candidiasis is a primary or secondary infections caused by fungi of the genus Candida, especially Candida albicans. Candidiasis is callled opportunistic infectious agents. This relates to local or systemic factors, which are caused due to antibiotics, corticosteroid, xerostomia, systemic disorders such as diabetes or immune defects, immunosuppressive treatment, AIDS, leukemia and lymphoma as well as chemotherapy. A 53-year-old male patient came to Baiturrahmah Dental Academic Hospital with complaints of pain on the tongue since 2 weeks ago and felt his mouth feel dry and uncomfortable and suspected to be diagnosed acute pseudomembran candidiasis. Management of the case was topical anti-fungal drugs such as nystatin oral suspension, vitamin C, and a topical antiseptic mouthwash containing heksetidin. Education about hygiene and oral health, as well as a healthy diet was given to the patient. Investigations such as blood tests recommended in patients to investigate the possibility of systemic disease (high leucocyte and erythrocyte sedimentation rat/ESR) L associated with oral lesions in patients.
