Abstract

Opportunistic fungal pulmonary infections are often difficult to diagnose and recalcitrant to treatment. In this article, we explore the treacherous topography of arriving at an accurate, definitive, and timely diagnosis of these opportunistic mycotic respiratory diseases. The pitfalls that must be avoided in achieving an accurate diagnosis are discussed.
