Main Fungal Pathogens Causing Infections in Immunocompromised Patients pp. 281-300 $100.00
Authors:  (Amany El Sharif, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt)
Abstract:
Fungi are increasingly recognized as major pathogens in critically ill patients. Medically
important fungi are included in four groups known as Zygomycota, Basidiomycota,
Deuteromycota and Ascomycota. The most frequently isolated fungi in clinical practice are
Candida spp.Candida albicans is the most frequent species isolated, but other species nonalbicans
Candida (NAC) are progressively detected and isolated. NAC are of special concern,
since some are highly virulent and are associated with treatment failure due to reduced
susceptibility to antifungal agents. The most frequent filamentous fungi (moulds) caused
problems for immunocompromised patients were identified as Aspergillus spp., but Fusarium
spp., Scedosporium spp., Penicillium spp., and Zygomycetes are increasingly reported. This
chapter shed light on main fungal pathogen frequently isolated from immunocompromised
patients with fungal infections.
