Fungal infections of the internal organs are known as systemic mycoses. Fungi can enter the body through the lungs, the gut, the paranasal sinuses, or the skin in the correct circumstances. Histoplasma capsulatum, Coccidioides immitis, and Blastomyces dermatitidis are fungi that can cause systemic infection. On the other hand, Malassezia can normally be found on human skin.
