History of Changes
C. dubliniensis has been identified as pathogen in Oropharyngeal Candidiasis(OPC)particularly among HIV patients. Azole therapy is a cornerstone in OPC, but resistance within C. dubliniensis isolates to diflucan is common.This is a prospective collection of biological specimens from oropharyngeal cavity with the purpose of determining the prevalence of C. dubliniensis in HIV/AIDS patients at the Duval County Department of Health Comprehensive care Center. It is hereto proposed an estimation of azole-resistance in these isolates.

Primary Outcome Measures
- Incidence of oropharyngeal candidiasis in our HIV population; estimation of the prevalence of candida dubliniensis and pattern of azole resistance to direct future treatment [ Time Frame: April 2009 ]
|Study Start Date:||May 2008|
|Study Completion Date:||January 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
This is a study to try to establish the prevalence of C. dubliniensis as a causative organism
of OPC in HIV and/or AIDS patients. We will aim to establish the resistance pattern for
azoles but also for Flucytosine and amphotericin of these isolates.
This study will serve as a support to previously published articles that have suggested intrinsic azole-resistance within this particular species of candida and we will try to postulate its possible correlation with clinical failure.

- Any prior diagnosis or established treatment for oropharyngeal, mucocutaneous or
