Abstract

Coelomycetes are being recovered with increasing frequency in human disease. They are frequently acquired by traumatic implantation and are of concern in profoundly immunosuppressed individuals. A definition of this group of organisms is provided, along with their clinical manifestations, methods for laboratory diagnosis, criteria for identification, in vitro susceptibility data, and guidelines for antifungal therapy and management.
