Fungi cause a wide variety of diseases in humans, and the areas we discuss are listed below. You may also want to refer to the Infectious Disease Society of America-Mycoses Study Group (IDSA-MSG) Practice Guidelines for treating invasive mycoses. These cover aspergillosis, blastomycosis, candidiasis, coccidiodomycosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, and sporotrichosis and are available at the (E):IDSA website. Finally, please be sure to refer to our legal disclaimer.

(Site development note: our discussions are currently relatively superficial for all the infections except candidiasis.)

Miscellanous Syndromes

These diseases are a little harder to classify as some of them are caused by one of several different fungi. Thus, even though they have a fungal-sounding name (e.g., Tinea barbae), you can’t always expect to find a corresponding fungus named Tinea barbosa!
