Background and purpose: Systemic mycoses can cause a tremendous variety of health problems. In this study, the prevalence of systemic mycoses infections was determined in patients admitted to Kerman teaching hospitals for six months. Materials and methods: This descriptive study was conducted in 104 suspected samples of systemic fungal infections collected from hospitalized patients. Direct smear and culture was done for fungal observation. The results of endoscopy and radiology were used in the diagnosis of systemic mycoses infections. Results: In this study we found 74 (71.1%) patients with systemic mycoses infections, 3cases (2.9%) of Dermatophytes and 27 cases (26%) were negative since no fungal elements was seen among them. Blood samples were found as the most infected samples which involved 49 samples with systemic fungal infection. The main causes of fungal infection were Candida, Saprophytic and Zygomycetes. Conclusion: The statistical results of this study suggest systemic fungal infections as the most important problems in the course of treatment among patients admitted and those who are more likely to be infected.
