Abstract: Background In the past few years, there has been an increase in infections caused by fungii which may be due to increased size of the population which is at risk, which includes transplant recipients, cancer patients, those who are on immunosuppressives, those who undergo prolonged hospitalization etc. Moreover, which were previously considered as non-pathogenic have been increasingly implicated. Hence, this study was taken up to study the profile of mycological infections. Methods A total of 2060 clinical specimens were studied. Case history of patients was recorded. All samples were studied by direct microscopy and culture as per standard microbiological procedures. Results In the study, growth was observed in 620 specimens (30.09%). Maximum number 272 (43.87%) of isolates were obtained feom BAL specimens followed by sputum 189(30.48%).Candida albicans was isolated from 225(36.29%) cases, while Candida non albicans were 165 (26.61%) . Aspergillus fumigatus was the most common species 97(15.64%). Among dermatophytes, T. rubrum was the commonest etiological agent followed by T. mentagrophytes . Conclusion Culture and identification of mycotic infections is essential for suitable antifungal treatment.The role of diagnostic mycology laboratory is important in the identification of these infections which help in management of fungal infections.
