The Pocket Guide to Fungal Infection presents, in a convenient and practical format, the major features of fungal infections in humans, providing visual information for each pathogen and the infections they cause. The second edition has been extensively revised. In each chapter the clinical manifestations and management sections have been revised and updated to include recently developed antifungal drugs. New sections include; * Emerging yeast and filamentous fungal pathogens * Antifungal susceptibility testing * Antifungal assays * Molecular methods in medical mycology * Mycological aspects of the indoor environment. Medical Mycology lends itself to illustration and as such there are over 40 additional images in this edition. Recent references have been added and the list of online resources has been updated. This Guide presents a succinct account of the clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis and management of fungal infections world-wide. It is an ideal publication for those who encounter fungal infections as part of their everyday practice, including medical microbiologists, infectious disease specialists, dermatologists and general practitioners.
