Fungal Infection: Diagnosis and Management

MD Richardson, David W Warnock

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book

Abstract

Fungal Infection: Diagnosis and Management summarises the clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of fungal infection. Infections are dealt with according to the affected system and clinical presentation rather than the individual fungal infection. As a result, this approach results in a problem–orientated text designed to help clinicians make the best use of the often time–consuming laboratory investigations.

In the three years since the first edition was written, significant developments have occurred in the diagnosis and management of superficial and deep–seated fungal infections, as well as new approaches to the diagnosis and prevention of infection, and introduction of new drugs. Additionally, in light of recent clinical trials, the role of several older drugs has changed.

Given the increasing importance of opportunistic infections among immunosuppressed patients, this book will be particularly helpful in hospitals lacking specialist mycological services and for those in general practice. In particular, Fungal Infection will appeal to microbiologists, dermatologists, venerealologists, medical students and junior doctors.
