Abstract
Diabetes mellitus is a major risk factor for fungal infections, and mortality increases when diagnosis and treatment of fungal infections are delayed in diabetic patients. Common fungal infections in diabetic patients are candidiasis, mucormycosis, and aspergillosis. These fungal infections show various clinical manifestations and are treated with various antifungal agents such as fluconazole, echinocandin, amphotericin B, and voriconazole. Early diagnosis and proper treatment are very important when fungal infection is suspected in diabetic patients.
Key Words: Aspergillosis, Candidiasis, Diabetes mellitus, Fungi, Mucormycosis
