Description The immune dysregulation triggered by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection has been hypothesised as a causal pathway for the increasingly reported oral manifestations associated with coronavirus diseases (COVID-19) especially the ones of fungal origin.1–3 As a result of this, we aim to report according to the CARE guidelines, three COVID-19 cases who sought teleconsultations from our private practice (Cairo, Egypt) from July to September 2020. In addition, we have performed a literature search in Ovid MEDLINE®, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and Epistemonikos from inception until November 30th, 2020 with a combination of keywords (COVID-19 OR SARS-CoV-2) AND oral candidiasis.
