Différents types de déficits immunitaires constitutionnels exposent au risque d’infections fongiques sévères. Ces infections peuvent être révélatrices du déficit. Le type de micro-organismes impliqués, la présentation clinique, la réaction immune observée autour du germe peuvent alors orienter le diagnostic étiologique. Comme souvent dans le domaine des déficits immunitaires, les avancées dans leur physiopathologie apportent des informations capitales sur les mécanismes de défense naturelle contre ces micro-organismes. Les progrès thérapeutiques ont considérablement amélioré le pronostic de ces infections potentiellement graves, chroniques et invalidantes.

Different types of hereditary immune deficiencies are at risk of severe fungal infections. Such infections can reveal the deficit. The type of micro-organisms involved, the clinical presentation, the immune reaction observed around the germ can then guide the etiological diagnosis. As often in the field of immunodeficiencies, advances in the pathophysiology provide crucial informations on the natural defense mechanisms against these organisms. Therapeutic advances have dramatically improved the prognosis of these potentially serious and disabling infections.
