This communication lists fungi reported to cause invasive infection in patients with AIDS. It excludes the well known and common fungi that infect these patients such as Candida, Cryptococcus, Histoplasma, Coccidioides and Aspergillus. It is likely that these less common fungal pathogens will be seen more frequently in the enlarging AIDS population as it is continuously exposed to many of these potentially opportunistic fungi.
