Voriconazole is an antifungal medication that is a derivative of the drug fluconazole. The main difference between the two is that voriconazole is shown to be more effective against a wider number of fungal organisms.
Voriconazole is often used by veterinarians to treat pets that are infected by fungal organisms that have developed a resistance to fluconazole and other antifungal drugs like itraconazole and amphotericin-B. Due to the broadness of its fungicidal activity, voriconazole is most commonly used to treat aspergillus infections as well as candida, fusarium, and Cryptococcus.

- Invasive aspergillosis
- Candidemia (nonneutropenics) and disseminated candidiasis in skin, abdomen, kidney, bladder wall, and wounds
