Within the field of infectious diseases, medical mycology has experienced significant growth over the last decade. Invasive fungal infections have been increasing in many patient populations, including: those with AIDS; transplant recipients; and the elderly. As these populations grow, sodoes the diversity of fungal pathogens. Paralleling this development, there have been recent launches of several new antifungal drugs and therapies. Clinical Mycology offers a comprehensive review of this discipline. Organized by types of fungi, this volume covers microbiologic, epidemiologic anddemographic aspects of fungal infections as well as diagnostic, clinical, therapeutic, and preventive approaches. Special patient populations are also detailed.
William E. Dismukes and Peter G. Pappas are both at University of Alabama School of Medicine at Birmingham. Jack D. Sobel is at the Wayne State University School of Medicine.

Editorial Reviews

"Each chapter could stand alone as a definitive monograph on a fungal topic with references sufficiently current to rival leading periodicals. An insert of more than 100 color photographs is included, many of which are classic illustrations of the morphologic characteristics of importantfungi or the manifestations of disease." -Annals of Internal Medicine
