Global climate change through rising temperatures and changing rainfall patterns is leading to disparate patterns of infectious diseases across space and time. Although the seasonality of respiratory viral illnesses, gastrointestinal infections, and vector-borne-diseases has been well described, the geoclimatic influences on invasive mycoses are less elucidated. Herein is presented a narrative review of the impact of world-wide climate change on the development of endemic and non-endemic invasive fungal infections (IFI) in humans framed within the classic “disease triangle” paradigm.

Keywords: Invasive Mycoses; Seasonality; Biogeoclimatic; Endemic Fungi
