Abstract

The introduction to this small moderately priced book does not declare the author's intentions for what particular members of the medical profession it was written. Following a reading of the text it is evident that the general practitioner, medical student and public health worker would find it of much value. In all probability the practicing mycologist or the laboratory worker concerned with the isolation of fungi from clinical materials would rely on more extensive books in the field. So often our present-day bacteriologic texts treat mycology in somewhat of a cursory manner. In a similar vein courses in bacteriology or microbiology relegate the consideration of the mycoses to a minor position with regard to the subject matter presented. This book would indeed effectively make up for shortcomings of some of our texts and if adopted for student use provide a stimulus to seek information about the mycotic infections and their causative agents.
