Abstract

Aim: To assess the association between COVID-19 and oral fungal infections. Methods: A review of fungal infections associated with COVID-19 was done by using major databases like PubMed, Scopus, Clinical Key, and EBSCO.

This review brings an insight into the possibility of fungal infections co-existing with COVID-19. Clinical Significance: It is important to assess the risk factors in order to manage fungal infections in patients who have a positive history of COVID-19.
