Mycoses are diseases caused by fungi. Mycoses have become a growing problem in modern medical care with the increase in the population of patients with immunodeficiency or undergoing immunosuppressive therapy.

Bacteriocins are ribosomally synthesized antimicrobial peptides, have traditionally been used as food preservatives, either added or produced by starter cultures during fermentation. In-depth studies of a select few bacteriocins opened exiting new research fields and broadened the application of these antimicrobial peptides. The application of the produced antimicrobial compounds as a natural barrier against fungal pathogens have been proven to be efficient. The present review focus on the bacteriocins unique properties which could be explored and utilized as an antifungal agent
