The article focuses on the oral manifestations associated with HIV infection. Around 60% of people with HIV and 80% of those with AIDS have an oral manifestation of the infection. Oral carriage of Candida species is seen in around 20% to 60% of the conventional populations yet infection occurs only in the presence of predisposing factors. About 21% of homosexual and bisexual men with AIDS have Kaposi's sarcoma the prevalence is much lower among other groups.
