Therefore, they require a functional immune system of the patient, and they will be positive only some time following the actual infection. Usually, there is a delay of at least 2 to 7 days. Nevertheless, fungal serology, specifically, the detection of circulating antibodies of the immunoglobulin classes G, A, and M directed against fungal epitopes, may be useful in a number of clinical settings [55, 56]. For instance, the detection of anti-Histoplasma, -Coccidioides, -Blastomyces, and -Paracoccidioides antibodies is a valuable tool outside the endemic areas [53,57].
