Abstract

As strategies to prevent invasive fungal infections among both hospitalized and nonhospitalized patients have evolved, the epidemiology of these infections has changed. Several unique features of select Candida species and molds have facilitated the emergence of these pathogens as more-common causes of infection than in previous years. In this context, the changing pathogen profiles, unique antifungal susceptibilities, and approaches to treatment are outlined.
