Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This is a comprehensive compilation of what is known about the entire spectrum of cutaneous infection in the immunocompromised host. . this book is intended for any physicians who care for immunocompromised patients, including internists, transplant surgeons, infectious disease specialists, pediatricians, rheumatologists, and hematologist/oncologists. . This book offers valuable information that is rarely presented in one place. It is a practical guide that can be used in daily practice and belongs in the library of any physician seeing immunocompromised patients." (Renata H. Mullen, Doody's Reviews, April, 2012)"This book is intended to be a clinical dermatological manual. In this regard, the various sections are extremely and amply well illustrated. The photographs are in color, well illuminated, and focused beautifully for the characteristic lesion discussed to be easily identified. . For physicians and allied care personnel involved in managing such patients, this book will visually complement standard textbooks of infectious diseases." (Donald C. Vinh, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Vol. 55, November, 2012)"This book fills a niche which is not well covered in the clinical literature. . It is targeted towards the more informed clinician who is used to managing immunosuppressed patients . .There is no doubt that this book fills an important gap left in the larger textbooks on infectious diseases and for this, as an infectious diseases doctor, I welcome this volume and will undoubtedly find it useful."
