This review focuses on the most economically and epidemiologically important fungi affecting humans and animals. This paper will also summarize the different techniques, either molecular, based on nucleic acid and antibody analysis, or nonmolecular such as microscopy, culture, UV Wood';s lamp, radiology, and spectroscopy used to identify species or group of fungi assisting clinicians to take the best control approach to clear such infections. On the molecular side, the paper will review results on genome sequencing which can help colleagues to identify their own DNA/RNA tests if they are interested in the diagnostic of fungi in medicine and veterinary medicine. © 2009 Elsevier Inc.
