Fungal infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Infections due to Candida and Aspergillus are the most frequent. The most common site of Candida infections is the oral mucosa, but disseminated infections may occur. Aspergillus infections predominate in the lung. Most parasitic infections in immunocompromised patients are due to Pneumocystis carinii, Toxoplasma gondii, Strongyloides stercoralis and Cryptosporidiae.
