Pathogenic Yeasts and Yeast Infections
Pathogenic Yeasts and Yeast Infections focuses on two major yeast genera (Candida and Cryptococcus) and the spectrum of their respective diseases. The book examines the biology of the yeasts, pathogenesis, epidemiology and host response, pathology and clinical symptomatology, diagnosis, and therapy. Genetic studies, morphology, yeast physiology, basic metabolic processes, immunological activity, and the current status of vaccines are addressed as well. In the clinical arena, pathogenesis, pathology, clinical syndromes, organ specificity, diagnostic techniques, and treatment are explored through personal experience and a broad survey of the current literature. The book is authoritative and logically organized for easy reference.
