Championing the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and management
of invasive fungal infections.
The DrFungus website is the educational and community resource for the Mycoses Study Group Education and Research Consortium (MSGERC). Doctor Fungus serves the broader community of physician colleagues, investigators and scientists involved in mycological science, research and clinical care. Educational resources are currently expanding and will be available and of interest across disciplines, including interested members of the community, health care advocates, teachers and those involved in development and analysis of healthcare policy.
Doctor Fungus reaches into the communities of health care professionals and brings you up to date information and news in the world of medical mycology. Doctor Fungus also serves as a resource for patients and caregivers who are dealing with these serious and rare diseases. The website includes important resources and information such as:
Have a case of interest for the broader Mycology community? Submit it for publication in DrFungus's Case of the Month.
The MSGERC periodically publishes newsletters of interest to highlight the work of MSGERC members and other leaders in the field of mycoses. To submit an article of interest or to join the distribution list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CDC and partners have organized this week to highlight the importance of recognizing serious fungal diseases early enough in the course of a patient’s illness to provide life-saving treatment.
Some fungal diseases go undiagnosed, leading to serious illness and death. Increased awareness about fungal diseases is one of the most important ways we can improve early recognition and reduce delays in diagnosis and treatment. A key clue to when a sick person may have a fungal disease is that he or she is being treated with medicine for another type of infection but does not get better.
