Amphotericin B has been the mainstay of broad spectrum treatment for systemic mycoses for more than 40 years. With new antifungal agents now introduced to the clinic it is reasonable to examine the place of amphotericin B in current antifungal therapy. The presentation will discuss amphotericin B, its history and its many formulations in the context of today’s therapeutic needs. Will amphotericin B die? If so, when?
