Summaries for Oral Candidiasis

PubMed Health : 63 Oral thrush: Oral thrush is a condition that can be difficult to recognize at first. It is rarely dangerous and not necessarily painful, but can be very unpleasant and greatly affect your quality of life. Oral thrush is caused by types of yeast fungus called Candida that live in the mucous membranes lining your mouth. Its medical name “oral candidiasis” is taken from this fungus. Oral thrush is most often caused by a type of Candida fungus called Candida albicans. Most people have small amounts of Candida on the mucous linings of their mouth without it causing any noticeable problems. But given the right conditions, the fungus can start reproducing very quickly. This often affects people who have serious diseases, and it can also be a side effect of certain types of treatment.

MalaCards based summary: Oral Candidiasis, also known as thrush, is related to candida glabrata and denture stomatitis, and has symptoms including oral manifestations An important gene associated with Oral Candidiasis is DEFB4A (Defensin Beta 4A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cytokine Signaling in Immune system and Innate Immune System. The drugs Fluticasone and Nystatin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include tongue, skin and liver, and related phenotypes are Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2) and immune system

CDC: 2 Candidiasis is an infection caused by a yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida. Candida normally lives inside the body (in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina) and on skin without causing any problems.1 Sometimes, Candida can multiply and cause an infection if the environment inside the mouth, throat, or esophagus changes in a way that encourages fungal growth. Candidiasis in the mouth and throat is also called "thrush" or oropharyngeal candidiasis. Candidiasis in the esophagus (the tube that connects the throat to the stomach) is called esophageal candidiasis or Candida esophagitis. Esophageal candidiasis is one of the most common infections in people living with HIV/AIDS

Disease Ontology: 11 A candidiasis that involves fungal infection of the mucous membrane of the mouth by Candida species, which is characterized by thick white or cream-colored deposits on inflamed mucosal membranes.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Oral Candidiasis

PubMed Health treatment related to Oral Candidiasis: 63

Oral thrush can be treated with antimycotics. These are available as drugs that produce either a topical (local) or a systemic (throughout the whole body) effect. Medication that acts in both ways is also an option. The type of medication that is best suited for someone with a weakened immune system will depend on their individual situation.
