ABSTRACT Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was first recognized in 1981 and in 1983 the virus responsible for this syndrome, the human immunodeficiency virus, was first isolated. There has been an increasing understanding of the many aspects related to infection with this virus and this review discusses the historical as well as the more recent findings related to infection with this virus. In particular, the pathogenesis, mode and course of infection are discussed followed by an overview of the general and oral manifestations of infection with this virus.

    ABSTRACT: This paper reviews the current concepts of mycology and candidal infections as they relate to the oral cavity. Proposed classification for the presentation of oral candidosis is outlined as are examples of these topical infections, such as erythematous, pseudo-membranous and hyperplastic candidosis, as well as angular chelitis and median rhomboid glossitis. The diagnosis and principles of management of oral candidosis are discussed, the therapeutic agents available for the management of these infections are presented and a treatment protocol for the management of patients with oral candidosis is given.

    ABSTRACT: A estomatite aftosa recorrente (EAR) é a afecção mais comum da mucosa oral. Apesar das constantes pesquisas e preocupação clínica, sua causa permanece obscura. Possui três formas principais. A mais comum é a EAR menor, com pequenas ulcerações definidas, arredondadas, que são dolorosas e cicatrizam em 10 a 14 dias. Na forma maior são maiores, duram de 6 semanas a mais e freqüentemente deixam cicatriz. A terceira forma é a herpetiforme com múltiplas lesões que podem coalescer e duram de 7 a 10 dias. O diagnóstico é feito após exame clínico. Alguns fatores locais e sistêmicos podem estar associados a doença e se tem evidência de que uma base imunogenética pode estar presente. O controle da doença depende de sua apresentação clínica e inclui drogas imunossupressoras, corticosteróides tópicos e sistêmicos e soluções anestésicas e antimicrobianas.
