Vaginal candidiasis, oropharyngeal & esophageal candidiasis, and cryptococcal meningitis are all treated with fluconazole. It can also be used to treat candida infections in the urinary tract, peritonitis, and systemic candida infections (including candidemia, disseminated candidiasis and pneumonia).



Fluconazole is a triazole antifungal that is used to treat fungal infections. It’s a strong inhibitor of cytochrome P-450-dependent enzymes in fungi. The ergosterol synthesis is carried out by the Cytochrome P-450 enzyme system, which is an important component of the fungal cell membrane.
