ABSTRACT: A total of 61 patients suspected to have AIDS with oral lesion/lesions suggestive of oral candidiasis were studied. Candida species were isolated from 39 patients. Of these 30 isolates were identified as C.albicans, 7 as C.tropicalis and 2 as C.albicans var. stellatoidea. Among the 30 Candida albicans strains isolated, 28 were C.albicans serotype `A' and 2 were C.albicans serotype `B'. Thus a predominance of C.albicans serotype `A' was observed.
