    Mycotoxins and the fungi that produce them are of increasing importance as causes of human illness, but the diseases produced remain poorly understood at the clinical level. This paper explores four aspects: the increase of interest in ochratoxin A, factors affecting mycotoxin production, toxicology of the major mycotoxins, and the identification of Penicillium species which cause food spoilage and are important in indoor air.
