Title : Fungi infection on the skin


Purpose of review: Fungal skin infections can happen anywhere on your body. Some of the most common are athletes foot, yeast infections, ringworm and jock itch. This presentation aims to highlight on recent findings about soft tissue infections, risk factors and therapeutic options for fungi causing skin.
Recent findings: Recently, the occurrence of fungal infections is very rampamt. This fungi infection occurs in two parts either primary or secondary skin infections and not only on systematic infections. Fungal pathogens which include Aspergillus fumigatus, Candida spp. and Dermatophytes. Antifungal resistance has become a major issue and covers several fungal. Multidisciplinary usage of newly targeted, immunomodulatory therapies may predispose patients to have fungal infections through mimicking an immunosuppressed status caused by genetic factors or the disease itself. Nonimmunosupressed patients, although less frequently than those with immunosuppression may also be vulnerable.
Summary: Systematic mycosis which is associated with skin and tissues should be discuss with Physicians. Antifungal resistance can affect the success of the treatment. The use of antifungal susceptibility test should be used when disseminating fungal infections.
