Abstract

An increased number of fungal infections of the eye have been reported in the past few decades, in part because of increased clinical awareness and improved laboratory techniques. The increase re flects more significantly the widespread use of antibiotics, immunosuppression, chemotherapy, and ocular prosthetic devices. Despite their ubiquitous nature, only a limited number of fungal species produce infections of the eye, and an even smaller number cause fungal retinitis or endophthalmitis. The major causes of fungal retinitis are Candida species, Aspergillus species, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Coccidioides immitis, Cryptococcus neoformans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Sporothrix schenckii.
