Abstract

Candida dubliniensis is a recently described species that has been shown to cause oropharyngeal candidiasis in patients with HIV. We present a detailed evaluation of a patient undergoing head and neck radiation for oral cancer who developed oropharyngeal candidiasis from a mixed infection of C dubliniensis and Candida albicans. To our knowledge, this is the first described case of C dubliniensis contributing to oropharyngeal candidiasis in this patient population.
