Invasive fungal diseases are prevalent in immunocompromised individuals in whom current therapies often provide suboptimal results. Additionally, the increased resistance to the available antifungal drugs necessitates a search for new compounds. This study reports the antifungal activity of six 5-, 6-, and 7-membered 2,3-diphenyl-2,3-dihydro-1,3-thiaza-4-ones against Lomentospora prolificans and Cryptococcus neoformans. Our data showed that some of the compounds tested had a low MIC and damage on the cell surface of the tested fungal species.
