Special Issue in Journal of Fungi: New Perspectives on Sporothrix and Sporotrichosis
Neglected in recent years, rare mycoses in underdeveloped or developing countries need attention from physicians, health systems, and society. Since notification is not mandatory, there are not even international programs for prevention or control, much less accurate data on incidence and prevalence.
In this Special Issue, we will compile the latest advances and medical challenges in epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neglected mycoses that affect developing countries, such as chromoblastomycosis, lobomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, candidiasis by antifungal-resistant species, and mycetoma.
