Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"In this book, the authors, all experts in Malassezia research, cover the history of the fungal species, associated skin conditions, epidemiology, genomic data and current treatment options. . the book is extremely well-written, with a consistent format and inclusion of clear and informative figures and tables. . This book would be an ideal purchase for researchers, clinicians . with a specialist interest in Malassezia, but also, as the first book to comprehensively review current scientific and clinical Malassezia knowledge, would be a worthwhile institutional purchase."
