An Overview on Threats to Human Health in Fungal Pathogens

Sakshi Pandey*

Fungal pathogens are microorganisms that cause fungal infections in humans, animals and plants. These pathogens are ubiquitous and can be found in soil, water, air and various living organisms. Fungal infections are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, particularly in individuals with weakened immune systems. In this article, we will explore the different types of fungal pathogens and their impact on human health. Fungal illnesses kill more than 1.6 million people each year, a rate comparable to TB and more than three times that of malaria.
