Clinical Significance: The antifungal drug itraconazole is active in the treatment of aspergillosis, blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, sporotrichosis and onychomycosis. It is a protein-bound drug and thus has negligible CSF penetration. It may also be utilized in the treatment of systemic candidiasis and cryptococcosis, especially when other drugs are contraindicated on ineffective. The chronic nature of fungal infections demands constant monitoring of intraconazole levels within a patient to ensure that adequate therapeutic levels of the drug are admistered, absorbed and subsequently excreted.
