dc.description.abstractObjective: : To estimate the incidence and prevalence of serious fungal infections in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), with a population of 1 394 973 million. Methods: : The medical literature was searched to obtain published data on the incidence and prevalence of fungal infections in the Caribbean. If data were unavailable, estimations were performed using the frequencies of fungal infection in populations at risk. Asthma and pulmonary tuberculosis rates were used to derive the prevalence of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), severe asthma with fungal sensitization (SAFS), and chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA). Results: : The estimated annual burden of fungal infections was 46 156 persons (3.3% of the population), including 21 455 women with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis, 118 persons with invasive aspergillosis, 3637 adults with ABPA, 4800 with SAFS, and 178 with CPA. Annually, we estimated 70 cases of candidemia and 14 647 cases of tinea capitis in children. Of the 11 000 persons living with HIV/AIDS, it was estimated that there were 40 cases of cryptococcal meningitis, 88 cases of disseminated histoplasmosis, and 124 cases of Pneumocystis pneumonia. Conclusion: : There seems to be an extensive burden of fungal infections in T&T. Hence, targeted interventions are required to improve clinical and laboratory diagnosis and a national surveillance system should be implemented.es_ES
