Yeast-Associated Infections

Yeasts cause a spectrum of diseases that range from colonization to uniformly fatal invasive disease. Invasive fungal disease may occur in immunocompromised patients, patients on immunomodulatory therapy or with indwelling devices, and critically ill patients. The species most likely to cause disease include cryptococcus neoformans and candida spp. Manifestations of infections may occur in one or more body sites, and often present with symptoms related to the site of involvement.
