Resumo

To assess the prevalence of candidiasis associated with Linear Gingival Erythema (LGE) in patients with HIV. Material and methods: Patients with HIV who sought care were identified and those with linear gingival erythema were included in the study. Initially, a questionnaire divided into two parts was applied, the first session consisting of personal and sociodemographic data and the second session containing questions related to health habits. Then, erythema samples were collected with a collector brush and cultivated in petri dishes containing CHROMagar for 3 days under aerobic conditions at room temperature. Plaque evaluation and colony counts were performed. Results: From a total of 46 patients, thirteen were included in the study. Among the samples, eleven were diagnosed with C. albicans and five were diagnosed with other species of Candida sp. Conclusion: A high prevalence of Candida sp. was observed on patients with lesions of linear gingival erythema and diagnosed with HIV.
