The field of medical mycology has witnessed major advances in recent years. This issue brings physicians up to date in the current methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of medically important fungal infections. Leading authorities in the field address the most important emerging fungi that physicians are encountering more and more today. Other fungi covered include aspergillosis, invasive candidiasis, zygomycosis, cryptococcosis, coccidioidomycosis, and phaeohyphomycosis. Endemic mycoses such as histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, sporotrichosis, and penicilliosis are also addressed. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antifungals are addressed, as well as antifungal susceptibility testing, and non-culture based diagnostics for opportunistic fungi. Attention is also given to how best to deal with mycoses in children.
