Abstract

Abstract One hundred forty healthy children, 3 to 12 years of age, were examined for the presence of oral Candida. Forty-five percent of the 3 to 5 1 2 - year olds and 65% of the 6- to 12-year olds were found to be Candida “carriers” (p < 0.05). No significant sex difference was found in the incidence of Candida “carriers.” The salivary IgA concentration did not differ significantly in Candida “carriers” and noncarriers. A significantly higher IgA concentration was found in children 6 to 12 years old (0.02 < p < 0.05). The concentration of salivary electrolytes was similar in Candida-positive and Candida-negative children.
