ABSTRACT: Chronic hyperplastic candidosis/candidiasis (CHC; syn. candidal leukoplakia) is a variant of oral candidosis that typically presents as a white patch . Candidal leukoplakia is usually considered to be a largely historical synonym for a type of oral candidiasis, now more. Clinically the lesions could not be reliably differentiated from “leukoplakia” due Recognition of chronic hyperplastic candidiasis from other “leukoplakias” is of.

What are the signs and symptoms? Dysplasia definition may be present, especially in speckled lesions. The ldukoplakia sites are the dorsum of the tongue and the post- commissural buccal mucosa see photos. Persistent genital arousal disorder.

The risk of malignant transformation is similar to normal mucosa. Another possible leukoplakiaa is thickening of the stratum spinosumcalled acanthosis. Darier’s disease follicular keratosis. The word “dysplasia” generally means “abnormal growth”, and specifically in the context of oral red or white lesions refers to microscopic changes “cellular atypia ” in the mucosa that indicate a risk of malignant transformation.

The word leukoplakia is also included within the nomenclature of other oral conditions which present as white patches, however these are specific diagnoses which are generally considered separate from leukoplakia, with the notable exception of proliferative verrucous leukoplakia, which is a recognized sub-type of leukoplakia.

Periapical, mandibular and maxillary hard tissues — Bones of jaws Agnathia Alveolar osteitis Buccal exostosis Cherubism Idiopathic osteosclerosis Mandibular fracture Microgenia Micrognathia Intraosseous cysts Odontogenic: Some signs are generally associated with leukoplzkia higher risk of cancerous changes see: Vigorous anti- fungal therapy is therefore essential but sometimes some residual uninfected plaque may persist after treatment and lesions often recur and require long-term leuioplakia anti-fungal therapy.


Erythroleukoplakia and erythroplakia have a higher risk of cancerous changes than homogeneous leukoplakia. Anti-fungals should be used. Premalignant lesions of oral mucosa. Palate Bednar’s aphthae Cleft palate High-arched palate Palatal cysts of the newborn Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia Stomatitis nicotina Torus palatinus.

Some verrucous leukoplakias may have an exophytic growth pattern, [2] and some may slowly invade surrounding mucosa, when the term proliferative verrucous leukoplakia may be used. Some clinicians use clinical photographs of the lesion to help demonstrate any changes between visits. Recommended recall intervals vary. Candida in oral leukoplxkia and oral cancer.

Chronic hyperplastic candidosis/candidiasis (candidal leukoplakia).

Another very common cause of white patches in the mouth is frictional or irritational trauma leading to keratosis. Canndidal mechanism of the white appearance is thickening of the keratin layer, called hyperkeratosis. Homogeneous areas or speckled areas can be seen, which do not rub off nodular lesions.
