Candida albicans is one of the indigenous oral microbial floras. which is known to harbor in keratotic lesions of oral cavity. Due to endogenous nitrosation potential of this organism dysplastic changes are usually associated in lesions with candidal invasion. This study was done to see the association of the organism with oral lichen planus and Leukoplakia in smears and histological secrinns. The presence of the nrgnnism was found to be statistically insignificant (p>O.05) in these lesions and there was no correlation between dysplasia and the presence of candidal hyphae in oral lichen planus and leukoplakia.
