Using multiple endonuclease restriction enzymes it was possible to distinguish 31 patterns among 33 epidemiologi-cally independent Candida albicans from the oral cavity. This degree of discrimination required the use of three restriction enzymes.Keywords - Candida albicans, RFLP, Electrophoretic patterns, Epidemiology.
