Abstract
This review focuses on azole antimycotics and anesthetic drugs being used during the perioperative period and discusses the possible clinically significant drug-drug interactions. Azole antimycotics are amongst the strongest inhibitors of CYP-mediated drug metabolism. Anesthesiologists must be aware of the interaction potential of azole antimycotics to be able to adjust their perioperative strategies according to the patient's condition and concomitant medication.
