The aim of this study was to detect whether there is a correlation between the dimorphic pattern of Candida cells and various types of vaginal discharge. For this purpose, 2861 Papanicolaou-stained cervicovaginal smears were examined cytologically and 265 of 2861 (9.26%) were diagnosed as having Candida cells.
