Although, there has been a significant progress in the field of pharmaceuticals and drug designing in the recent past, yet there is a vacuum in the development of broad spectrum antifungal drugs. Those drugs that are at our disposal are not free from side effects having several risks and associated toxicities on prolonged usage. Therefore, there has been an ever escalating demand of devising new drugs that are preferably natural and free from side effects. The current article deals with the most recent natural antifungals, their salient features and their targets in order to provide the readers a clear understanding of the importance of the natural drugs and to provide the motivation so as to devise new and effective analogs of these drugs thus helping us combat the fungal diseases in a better way.
