This clinical handbook comes at a time when more clinicians are confronted with an increase in fungal infections amongst immunosuppressed patients, including those with AIDS. It is aimed at hospitals without a specialist mycological service and for those in general practice. The book presents in comprehensive and detailed summary form the clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis and management of superficial, subcutaneous and systemic fungal infections in European, American and Australasian practice. Problems encountered both in hospitals and in general practice are covered, with emphasis on clinical diagnosis, specimen taking, interpretation of lab results and choice of treatment. The outline format of the book has been designed to facilitate rapid reference.
