The number of fungal species is conservatively estimated to be 1.5 million, and at least 98,000 have been described formally (1). Although more than 300 of these are documented as causing disease in humans, only about 100 are encountered regularly as pathogens of humans. Virulence among these fungi varies, as do the entry portals through which they cause disease in the host and the manner in which they subsequently could spread. These various differences provide a convenient basis for broadly categorizing the mycoses, and they also help in delineating biosafety measures needed for the safe handling and storage of the fungi involved.

Figure 1

Spore formation provides an efficient mechanism for dispersal of molds. Spores from some species pose a risk of infection to laboratory personnel. In this image of cells of a vegetative hypha have transformed into spores (arrows) that will be liberated when walls of the adjacent cells, now dead and withered, become fractured (arrowheads).
