Yeasts are found ubiquitously in nature in association with plants, mammals, and insects. Humans are continually exposed to multiple genera of yeasts via various routes. Depending on the interaction between host mucosal defense mechanisms and fungal virulence factors, yeast colonization may be transient or persistent and either systemic or local disease can ensue.
