Abstract

Fungal lung infections are widely encountered and present both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. The increasing prevalence of fungal infections is correlated with increasing numbers of immunocompromised patients, enhanced awareness of these infections, and improved methodologies for diagnosis. Fortunately, additional antifungal agents are available to combat these important infections. This review covers the clinical approach to fungal lung infections encountered in pulmonary and critical care practice.
