AbstractA 4-year longitudinal study of the oral prevalence of enteric gram-negative rods and yeasts in 116 Chinese primary school children in Hong Kong was conducted. The oral prevalence of enteric gram-negative rods for each consecutive year was 25.3%, 37.0%, 24.0% and 25.8% respectively, with a weighted mean of 27.9%. Enterobacteriaceae, which comprised 57% of all enteric gram-negative rods, were more common in children with no caries experience. The oral prevalence of yeasts for each consecutive year was 7.7%, 12.0%, 14.4% and 15.5% respectively, with a weighted mean of 12.5%. Candida albicans comprised 84% of all yeasts isolated. Oral yeast carriage was significantly associated with caries prevalence. While the oral prevalence of enteric gram-negative rods in primary school children in Hong Kong may be higher than in other parts of the world, repeated isolation of either enteric gram-negative rods or Candida spp. from individual children over the 4-year study period was rare, suggesting that carriage of these organisms is transient.
