Abstract

Fungal allergy is discussed in this review. Aerobiological, epidemiological data are presented. Immunobiology
of fungal (mould and yeast) allergens and mechanisms of fungusinduced allergic diseases also summarized in the review. Fungi are ubiquitous in environments. Mold spores are found both indoors and outdoors. Most
fungi are not pathogenic to healthy humans while some cause diseases. Molds and other fungi produce allergens, irritants, and toxic substances (mycotoxins)
