DescriptionVoriconazole (Vfend, Pfizer) is a triazole antifungal medication used to treat serious fungal infections.[L15571] It is used to treat invasive fungal infections that are generally seen in patients who are immunocompromised. These include invasive candidiasis, invasive aspergillosis, and emerging fungal infections. The increased affinity of voriconazole for 14-alpha sterol demethylase makes it useful against some [fluconazole]-resistant organisms.[A236050] Voriconazole was approved by the FDA under the trade name Vfend on May 24, 2002.[L34660]
