Candidiasis, angular cheilitis form.

Candidiasis, angular cheilitis form.

Also seen in individuals with denture-related chronic atrophic candidiasis is angular cheilitis. This condition is especially prevalent in individuals who have deep folds at the commissures as a result of mandibular overclosure. In such circumstances, small accumulations of saliva gather in the skin folds at the commissural angles and are subsequently colonized by yeast organisms (and often by Staphylococcus aureus).
