Standardized national surveillance for fungal diseases

The Council of State and Territorial EpidemiologistsExternal, with CDC programs, determines which diseases are nationally notifiable and approves standardized case definitions. Health departments voluntarily submit data on notifiable diseases to CDC’s National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System.

Two fungal diseases are nationally notifiable:

Three fungal diseases or conditions have standardized case definitions but are not nationally notifiable:
