Fungal infections are highly prevalent globally. In humans, these infections arise when invasive fungi dominate a body area and overwhelm the immune system. Fungi exist in various environments like soil, plants, water, and air, with some even residing naturally within human bodies.

While some cases are mild, resembling upper respiratory infections, others can be severe, affecting the bloodstream and all organ systems.
