Diagnosis and Treatment of Human Mycoses brings together globally-recognized mycoses experts to guide readers in the use of current knowledge in the field of medical mycology to manage those who suffer from fungal infections (mycoses). Often, diagnostic strategies and tests, including basic and directed culturing techniques, histopathology with standard and special stains, serological methods, and radiological studies all need to be considered and commonly combined to make the diagnosis of fungal infection. This volume first introduces and reviews these tools separately and then as they pertain to specific infections or groups of diseases. The volume consists of four parts. Parts I-III provide an overview of diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and part IV presents the human mycoses.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Human Mycoses is meant to be a concise text that will provide the busy infectious disease, hematology–oncology, pulmonology, or critical care specialist a practical tool to diagnose and manage fungal infections. In addition, the depth of the material in the text will provide these and other medical specialists and trainees an excellent reference and learning resource.

From the reviews:
"This addition to the Infectious Disease series concisely reviews fungal diseases. ... The intended audience includes busy infectious diseases physicians, critical care providers, hematology/oncology practitioners, and, in general, every healthcare provider involved in the care of patients with human mycoses. ... This is a practical review of mycology intended for busy practitioners, but it also has the potential to be used as a primer for busy practitioners, but it also has the potential to be used as a primer on fungal diseases for subspecialty trainees." (Carlos Ernesto Figueroa Castro, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2008)
"A comprehensive treatise on an increasingly relevant subspecialty of infectious diseases and microbiology, medical mycology. ... The editorial style is clear and consistent. The chapter content is well organized, up-to-date ... and appropriate for both the novice who is trying to understand the difference between ‘mucomycosis’ and ‘zygomycosis,’ and the expert who needs to use the book for quick reference. ... will be highly appreciated by lecturers and educators." (Luis Ostrosky-Zeichner, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Vol. 46, May, 2008)
