Abstract

Radiologic imaging of the structures of the central nervous system (CNS), upper and lower respiratory tract, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system is integral to the diagnosis and management of most human mycoses. Although there are no pathognomonic radiological findings associated with fungal infections, diagnostic imaging combined with clinical data (including historical data of endemic exposures, use invasive devices, coexisting disease or immunodeficiency, surgeries, and duration of illness) can be used to improve diagnostic accuracy and aid in the long-term treatment of certain conditions.
