ABSTRACT: Chronic hyperplastic candidosis/candidiasis (CHC; syn. candidal leukoplakia) is a variant of oral candidosis that typically presents as a white patch . Candidal leukoplakia is usually considered to be a largely historical synonym for a type of oral candidiasis, now more. Clinically the lesions could not be reliably differentiated from “leukoplakia” due Recognition of chronic hyperplastic candidiasis from other “leukoplakias” is of.
