Abstract

Ocular mycoses are being reported with increasing frequency as a consequence of new medical practice and an increase in the number of immunosuppressed patients in the population, e.g.,, patients who are HIV positive and patients receiving radiation or chemotherapy. This article describes the ocular mycoses likely to be seen in such patients.
