Fungal infections, also called mycoses, are important causes of mortality and morbidity in humans. Compromised immunity is the most important predisposing factor for clinically significant fungal infections. In this paper, the antifungal immune defense has been discussed and a simplified approach to immune deficiencies with increased susceptibility to fungi has been provided.
