In brief: Several choices
Three classes of antifungal agents are available for the treatment of invasive aspergillosis: polyenes, azoles, and echinocandins.
Historically, Amphotericin B was the major antifungal drug used in patients. Currently, the drug of choice for invasive aspergillosis is voriconazole, which can be replaced with lipid formulations of Amphotericin B in intolerant patients.
