This book describes an evidence-based, practical approach to diagnosis and treatment of the fungal infections most frequently encountered in a general hospital. The opening section provides an easy-to-understand overview of the basic medical and scientific background of fungal infections. Epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostics, and treatment are then carefully explained and discussed for a variety of clinical syndromes, including those associated with Candida, Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, and Pneumocystis spp., Mucoraceae, dermatophytes, and rare fungi. Readers will gain a clear perception of common management challenges and the best way to respond to them, including in specific patient groups such as children and the immunocompromised. In addition to providing an excellent tool for decision-making on clinical management, the book offers a sound basis for the framing of further research questions and studies in the field. It will be an invaluable companion for doctors, students of medicine and pharmacology, nurses, and other health care professionals.
