Abstract

Basic data of this study showing isolates mostly
taken from male than female (77.5% and 22.5%). The
most age group is productive age groups in the age
range of 26-35 years with 20 subjects (50%). In 2017
report of the Directorate General of Disease Control
and Environmental Health, Ministry of Health Republic
of Indonesia, found HIV/AIDS patients more male
than women, and related more common in young adult
which makes it more likely to engage in unsafe sexual
behavior that is at risk of HIV transmission (8). The
domicile of HIV / AIDS patients with OC mostly came
from Surabaya (90%). This is because most patients
have to seek help from the nearest health center with
most patients from within the city. The isolates most
were taken from HIV / AIDS patients with OC who had
an absolute CD4 count <100 cells / L for 28 patients
(70%). This data is supported by a 2015 Indian study by
Kumar that showed 71.4% of patients with a CD4 cell
count <200 cells / µL obtained by the fungus growth of
Candida species from OC lesions (9).
