Because of the relevance that the systemic mycoses has acquired in non-highly immunocompromised patients, thetreatment difficulties they have due to the increase of the non-albicans Candida species and the need to have a better and more rational use of the new antifungal agents (voriconazole, posaconazole, caspofungin, anidulafungin and micafungin), an experts’ panel on infectious diseases in representation of the Spanish Society of Chemotherapy, Spanish Society of Internal Medicine, and Spanish Society of Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery has met in order to make a few recommendations based on the scientific evidence in an effort to improve their efficiency.


Key words:Systemic mycoses. Low grade immunosuppression. New antifungal agents.
