Abstract The in vitro activity of voriconazole was compared with that of itraconazole. Eighty-six isolates of pathogenic molds belonging to 23 species were tested by an agar dilution method in High Resolution medium. Voriconazole was more active than itraconazole against a number of hyaline molds, including several Fusarium spp. and Scedosporium prolificans. Voriconazole and itraconazole showed comparable good activity against several hyaline molds, including Penicillium marneffei and Scedosporium apiospermum, and a number of dematiaceous molds, including Bipolaris australiensis, Cladophialophora bantiana, several Exophiala spp., and several Fonsecaea spp. Our results suggest that voriconazole could be effective against a wide range of mold infections in humans.
