Abstract: Invasive fungal infections (IFI) has high morbidity and mortality. It is more common in hospital infections, and especially in sepsis, the risk of secondary IFI is increased. Immunosuppression of sepsis may affect immune function of T cells, and various T cells subsets have different effects on various fungal pathogens of IFI. The review discusses the pathophysiological processes, mechanism and therapeutic methods of T cell immunity in IFI secondary to sepsis, into summarize the role of T cells in IFI secondary to sepsis and introduce the new immunotherapy.

Key words: invasive fungal infections, T-cell subsets, sepsis, immunotherapy
