Background: The genus Candida (yeasts) is considered super infecting microorganism and can lead to oral candidiasis, sever periodontitis and others especially in immunocompromised patients. The chronic use of antifungal agents, in the treatment of candidiasis, mainly in HIV/AIDS patients leads to the selection of isolates resistant to this.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
