A prospective randomized double blinded placebo controlled comparative trial will be performed at HIV clinic of the Muhimbili National Hospital/MUCHS where 220 HIV positive patients presenting with oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) on antiretroviral (ARVs) treatment or not will be included.
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of single dose fluconazole (750mg) and two weeks course of fluconazole (150mg once daily)in the treatment of OPC in HIV positive patients. It is hypothesised that the two regimens are equally effective in the treatment of OPC.
