Fifty patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in the age group of 5-20 years were assessed for oral candidal carriage state and other related oral manifestations. The control group showed 16% Candida carrier state, whereas the IDDM group showed 92% candida carrier state. The candidal count was significantly higher in the IDDM group. Other associated oral manifestations like dry mouth, burning sensation, and painful fissures were also observed in the IDDM subjects.
