Answer

Although C albicans is the most commonly identified Candida species, C dubliniensis has garnered notice as a cause of oral infection that is seen, for the most part, only in patients who are HIV positive. [19] Other Candida species implicated in HIV-related candidiasis are C glabrata and C tropicalis.
