Abstract

Object This paper outlines the development of the fungi as pathogenic organisms and the changing etiological trend towards disease caused by Candida species other than C. albicans as well as other yeasts. Conclusions There is a distinct shift in the pattern of fungal infections; with some of the newer pathogenic species exhibiting resistance to currently available antifungal therapies. There is, therefore, a need to search for additional, more potent, nontoxic drugs with a broad spectrum of activity and carrying a low incidence of resistance development by the mycotic agents for which they are employed.
