Inflammatory Papillary Hyperplasia of the Palate: Quantitative Analysis of Candida albicans and its Negative Correlation with Microscopic and Demographic Aspects

Maria Carolina Vaz Goulart, DDS, MSc/Vanessa Soares Lara, DDS, MSc, PhD

PMID: 21519569

Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia of the palate (IPHP) is a tissue-reactive overgrowth characterized by hyperemic mucosa with nodular or papillary appearance in the palate. The exact pathogenesis is still unclear. In this study, the presence of Candida albicans in the epithelial lining was evaluated using the indirect immunofluorescence staining technique. Strongly stained C albicans was observed only in the lesions of the IPHP group. Therefore, the detection of C albicans in almost all samples from IPHP tissue enabled a suggestion as to the microbial etiology of the disease, since the use of dental prostheses was reported.
