Increased interest from academic, industrial, and government scientists in the pathogenic molds and yeasts has stimulated research that has resulted in a significant expansion of our knowledge of the biology, molecular genetics, clinical expression, diagnosis, and management of fungal diseases. Medical Mycology has therefore been thoroughly revised and updated for this edition to include coverage of all newly identified and emerging fungal pathogens or fungal infections, innovative research, and the development of applications of new technology in the field. Medical Mycology provides comprehensive coverage of the pathogenic fungi and the diseases they cause. The volume covers the history, the biologic and molecular taxonomy of the fungal pathogens, diagnostic techniques, and integration of newer antifungal agents and strategies for the management of fungal pathogens, followed by detailed reviews of the etiological agents grouped by the principle sites that they target and the host response they elicit. Medical Mycology is an important resource for all members of the medical mycology community and associated disciplines, including research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists, infectious disease specialists and other clinicians, and epidemiologists. It will also be a powerful resource and inspiration for students interested in studying the relationship between the fungi and their hosts, leading to the diverse infections that they cause. • Contains the latest information on epidemiology, identification, classification, and new and emerging infections, all supported by the basic science that underlies infectious disease • Fully integrated color for the first time with color illustrations throughout • An international acclaimed editorial team and a highly respected group of contributors, drawing on expertise from over 20 countries • All of the information in the book is also available on a fully-searchable CD-ROM Table of Contents: Part I: Background and basic information Historical introduction: evolution of knowledge of the fungi and mycoses from Hippocrates to the twenty-first century Edouard Drouhet Kingdom Fungi: fungal phylogeny and systematics Thomas G.
