Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Invasive candidiasis is a very serious Candida spp. infection and includes candidemia (bloodstream and other sterile body site infections) and deep-seated infections, which may be localized or lead to secondary candidemia. Mortality rates associated with invasive candidiasis can range from 35 to 75%, and despite efforts to introduce new antifungal agents, candidiasis has not decreased in the past two decades, especially in intensive care units. The main factors contributing to this problem are the difficulty in diagnosis due to the nonspecific clinical symptoms of systemic fungal infections, delayed laboratory detection methods, and subsequent delays in the initiation of adequate antifungal therapy.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the importance of new diagnostic tools and antifungal drugs in the management of invasive candidiasis. Original research or reviews papers on host–pathogen interactions and antifungal resistance are also welcome.
