Human Fungal Pathogens, Hardback Book

Human Fungal Pathogens Hardback

Edited by Oliver Kurzai

Part of the The Mycota series


Whereas plant and insect infections are commonly caused by fungi, only a small minority of the vast diversity of fungal species is pathogenic to humans.

Despite this, fungal infections cause considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide.

This volume is dedicated to the biology, clinical presentation and management of invasive fungal infections.

Major pathogenic fungi are introduced by world-leading experts and the basic principles of fungal virulence are reviewed in the light of new results and experimental technologies that offer unprecedented insights into invasive infections caused by Aspergillus, Candida, Cryptococcus, Pneumocystis and Mucorales.

In parallel, the clinical presentation of invasive fungal infections and current approaches to their diagnosis and treatment are summarized to provide an overview of human pathogenic fungi, linking pathogen biology to the clinical presentation of disease.
