Abstract

Fungal infections are an important and increasingly prevalent cause of disease in certain patient populations. These infections can occur both in immune-compromised and immune-competent individuals. Because the number of patients who are immunocompromised is steadily growing, it is vital for clinicians to consider fungal disease in the differential diagnosis of these patients. This article reviews the epidemiology and approach to diagnosis of a variety of fungal infections.
