Textbook of Medical Mycology (4th Ed.)

Langue : Anglais

Couverture de l’ouvrage Textbook of Medical Mycology

Medical mycology refers to the study of fungi that produce disease in humans and other animals, and of the diseases they produce, their ecology, and their epidemiology.

This new edition has been fully revised to provide microbiologists with the latest information on fungal infections, covering the entire spectrum of different types of infection, and therapeutic modalities.

Beginning with a general overview explaining morphology, taxonomy, and diagnosis, the following sections cover the different categories of fungal infection including superficial cutaneous mycoses, subcutaneous mycoses, systemic mycoses and opportunistic mycoses. A complete section is dedicated to pseudofungal infections.

The highly illustrated text concludes with a detailed appendices section and each chapter features key references for further reading.
