    Econazole nitrate is an insoluble (0.00148 mg/mL) imidazole antifungal that specifically targets the cell membrane of fungi.

    Mechanism of ActionEconazole nitrate increases cell permeability by inhibiting enzymes involved in ergosterol synthesis. The increase of permeability has a toxic effect on the fungi and leads to cell death.
