Azole antifungals consist of two primary classes: imidazoles and triazoles. Both classes are fungistatic agents and share similar mechanisms of action. The azoles interfere with the synthesis and permeability of fungal cell membranes by inhibiting cytochrome P450-dependent 14-alpha-sterol demethylase.
