Abstract: 【Abstract】 Antifungal agents have shown good efficacy and tolerability in the general population. However, there are great challenges in antifungal treatments among some special populations due to their special conditions, such as children, the elderly, pregnant women and patients with hepatic insufficiency. This review summarizes recommendations for the use of common antifungal agents in the above special populations.
