By Antonio Luengo Garcia and Antonio Martins de Siqueira

Abstract

Foram estudadas 104 amostras de secreção vaginal de mulheres com suspeita de candidiase segundo observações clinicas, na cidade de Alfenas-MG. Encontrou-se 55,7% de positividade para Candida albicans .prevalecendo maior índice na raça negra (64% de 25 amostras), sendo de 53,1% (79 amostras), a positividade na raça branca. Em 14 gestantes, a pesquisa da levedura mostrou-se positiva na totalidade dos casos. A maioria das amostras positivas (93,1%) procedia de mulheres com idade compreendida entre 20 40 anos. O uso de anticoncepcionais, antibióticos e presença de displasias cervicais mostraram-se como fatores que contribuiram para maior incidência do fungo. Das 58 amostras de C. albicans isoladas, 50 (86,2%) pertenciam ao sorotipo "A", sendo 37 (74%) isoladas de mulheres da raça branca e 13 (26%) da raça negra. Apenas 08 amostras (13,8%) pertenciam ao sorotipo "B", sendo 05 (11,9%) isoladas a partir de mulheres da raça branca e 03 (18,75%) da raça negra.<br>According to clinical observations in the city of Alfenas-MG, 104 samples of vaginal secretion in women with suspected candidiasis were studied. 55,7% of positivity were found for Candida albicans, prevailing greater rate in black people (64% of 25 samples) than in white people, the least positive in the total of cases. The majority of the positive samples (93.1%) belonged to women within the ages of 20 and 40. The use of contraceptives, antibiotics and the presence of cervical displasy were the factors that contributed to the greatest incidence of the fungi. Of the 58 samples of C. albicans isolated, 50 (86,2%) belonged to the serotype "A", of these 37 (74%)) were isolated from white women and 13(26%) of black ones. Only 08 samples (13.8%) belonged to the serotype "B", 05 of the 08 (11.90%) were isolated from white women and 03 (18.75%) of the black women
