Se describe un cambio en la epidemiología de las infecciones micóticas invasivas en los últimos años, con un creciente incremento de la importancia de nuevos patógenos que se han convertido en agentes asociados con elevada mortalidad en pacientes inmunocomprometidos.

Las infecciones micóticas invasivas (IMI) constituyen una importante causa de morbimortalidad, en especial en los pacientes con factores de riesgo subyacentes (neutropenia, quimioterapia, trasplante, sida). Las especies de los géneros Candida y Aspergillus representan aun las causas relevantes de IMI, pero otros organismos están adquiriendo importancia creciente. Han surgido especies del género Aspergillus menos sensibles a los antifúngicos y se ha encontrado resistencia a los azólicos, especialmente en Aspergillus fumigatus. Asimismo, las infecciones debidas a especies de los géneros Trichosporon, Fusarium y Glomeromycota (antes llamado Zygomycetes) se han incrementado y se asocian con altas tasas de mortalidad. Algunas de estas infecciones emergentes se presentan como brotes durante el tratamiento con nuevos antifúngicos, como las equinocandinas o los azólicos. La incidencia, gravedad y pronóstico de las IMI dependen de manera acentuada del organismo causal, el estado del paciente, el nivel de inmunosupresión y la localización geográfica. El diagnóstico precoz y el reconocimiento de estos cambios epidemiológicos son críticos para la atención de los pacientes.

Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in patients with underlying risk factors (e.g., neutropenia, cancer chemotherapy, transplantation, AIDS). Candida species and Aspergillus species remain the relevant causes of IFI but other organisms become increasingly important. Aspergilli, less susceptible to antifungals emerge and resistance to azoles has been found mainly in Aspergillus fumigatus. Also, infections due to Trichosporon species, Fusarium species and Glomeromycota (formerly Zygomycetes) are increasing and are associated with a high mortality rate. Some of these emerging infections occur as breakthrough infections during treatment with new antifungals such as the echinocandins and azoles. The incidence, severity and outcome of IFIs is largely influenced by the causative organism, underlying condition, state of immunosuppression, and the geographic location. Early diagnosis and recognition of these epidemiologic changes is critical to patient care.
