Phytophthora capsici is a pathogen that limits the production of diverse crops of economic interest, mainly of the Solanaceae and Cucurbitaceae families. Many studies of this pathogen have been carried out due to its impact on agricultural production systems. This review covers studies on topics such as isolation methods, fungicide resistance, pathogenicity and virulence, physiological races, genetic diversity of its populations, and studies of the genetic expression during the plant-pathogen interaction. The objective of this review is to abridge the information generated on these topics in order to guide future research on this pathogen.
