Otolaryngic Fungal Infections

Fungi are plant-like organisms that lack chlorophyll.When the body's immune system is suppressed, fungi find an opportunity to attack the body and a number of side effects arise. Fungal organisms enter the human body through the ear, oral cavity and sino-nasal cavity which leads to fungal infections. Fungal infections in the area of otorhinolaryngology often occur in association with a decrease in the immune function and that indigenous fungi rarely exhibit pathogenicity in the infections.
