Table 5 Cultured and microscopic yeast.

From: Gastrointestinal flora and gastrointestinal status in children with autism – comparisons to typical children and correlation with autism severity

  Autism/Aspergers Control P-value
Candida albicans 15.6% (0.24 ± 0.7) 10.3% (0.13 ± 0.4) n.s.
Other yeast 12.1% (0.12 ± 0.3) 2.6% (0.05 ± 0.3) n.s.
Dysbiotic yeast 6.9% (0.14 ± 0.8) None detected n.s.
Yeast (microscopic) 70.7% (1.45 ± 1.4) 84.7% (1.87 ± 1.4) n.s.
  1. The table indicates the percentage of participants with detectable (> 0) bacteria and in parenthesis average values and standard deviation.
  2. Numerical values of bacteriology culture ranged from 0-4. Variations in cultured and microscopic concentrations are typical due to the non-uniform distribution of yeast in the stool.
