We have clustered the published articles in fungal infection between 2016 and 2017 in four categories. First, the emergence of Candida auris as a nosocomial pathogen associated to high antifungal resistance and high mortality. Second, the growing importance of fungal infections associated to the use of biologic therapies. Third, the approval of isavuconazole for the treatment of filamentous fungi and dymorphic mycoses with positive results and less side effects. And finally, a mix of other important news regarding empiric therapy, fluconazole toxicity and difficult-to-treat fungal infections..
