Call for Cases of Challenging Invasive Fungal Infections

Do you have an interesting case of an IFI in a patient with COVID-19? Or a challenging case of candidiasis or endemic mycoses? Please consider sending your case to us.  We are compiling a range of cases for discussion that illustrate diagnostic and management challenges for these difficult infections. Select cases will be workshopped by our expert faculty.
