Abstract

Fungal pathogens are found in the natural environment and associated with living organisms including humans. The major life-threatening human fungal pathogens are Cryptococcus, Aspergillus, and Candida species (spp.). Among Candida spp., C. albicans is the most prevalent human pathogen responsible for a range of infections that differ in their severity according to the host's immune status.
