Fluconazole belongs to the group of antifungal agents called triazole. It functions by inhibiting cytochrome p-450-mediated 14 alpha-lanosterol demethylation which is an important step in the fungal ergosterol biosynthesis. The antifungal activity of fluconazole maybe due to the accumulation of 14 alpha methyl sterols which subsequently leads to the loss of ergosterol in the fungal cell membrane. Fluconazole has been proven to be very selective to fungal cytochrome P-450 over mammalian cytochrome P-450.
