Fungal Infections

Welcome to LIFE’s one-stop-shop for national and international clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and management of fungal diseases.

The documents have been identified though literature searches, our own comprehensive files and the websites of reputable health agencies. These documents provide the most up to date recommendations from experts in their respective fields, based on scientific literature and research. Where no guidelines exist for a particular disease, comprehensive reviews are included which contain expert recommendations.
